My practice depicts an act of penetration between the physical body and digital lens.

Mainly through manipulation of disparate online material combined with installation, sound and videos in which I’ve acted and edited, the work often comprises four key components of minority: race, gender, caste and sexuality. It’s reflective of interwoven complexities around these states of consciousness and it exists as I do.

 

My mind dips in and out of one world whilst my body is only partly in another - then society tugs me elsewhere. By making sense of these interlocking worlds, I now seek to redefine and unpack what I’m bound by in this body through 3D world-building and world-framing.

 

Within a world of omni-relevance, viewers are encouraged to step back and really look at how everyday activities and social interactions frame limitations around fluidity.

Through depictions of simpler rituals of the human experience, I seek to explore themes of consent, representation and fluidity with a hope to dismantle the complications that surround them.
