My current work investigates the body's relationship to forgotten historic objects and cultural forms. I am interested in re-materializing the sort of objects that history leaves out, utilitarian objects too common to be recorded or preserved. I am interested in the invisible, the forgotten and the overlooked and in creating objects and structures that signify or embody the evidence of their existence. Contending with concepts of class, gender and domesticity, both public and private, I work through a lens of history, investigating forms with a keen interest in construction and craftsmanship.
