I reinvent the function of redundant everyday objects to reveal inherent potential uses and look synthesise visual art forms with the musical. I look for ways in which the everyday can be poeticised and implement ritual and liminal experience into everyday life by challenging social and cultural norms; thus revealing the inherent curiosities and enchantments of the everyday. I use obsolete technologies and repetition in my practice. Both the technical processes and conceptual aspects of printmaking confront notions art in the age of digital reproduction.
