Past Shows and works
Ham Sandwich- Final Degree Show- June 2010
This Installation took the form of a bedsit, completely decorated and with carpet and bed, the darkened room flicked between several projections and films on screen placed throughout the room. A single narrative was played out in a sporadic and unmatched manner telling the story from several different perspectives, it would seem.
The story itself was bound with 5 books placed within the room. On the bed a half finished ham sandwich and an abandoned typewriter sit awaiting their owner.
A one night only event of music, readings and a small exhibition of my photo-documentation works.

Project Biennale- Collective 2008-9 Sheffield, Wimbledon and Venice Biennale 2009
A collaborative work from students at SHU, Chelsea school of art and Wimbledon. A commentary was set up to discuss the function and institutionalisation of the Biennale itself. Based in book form the project allowed the collaborators to both produce individual works: ranging from essay's to sculptural works, to curating a Biennale and inviting other artists to be involved. Project Biennale is still circling in other shows around the world.
Continuous 'Writing' collection 2006-ongoing- These are my writings which I find difficult to title, each are disposable, yet have great impact on my body of work. Ranging from poems, one sentence poems, one word poems, to Short stories.
Paparatzisnappy 2008- ongoing- A collection of socially engaging photographs, taken in a footloose and socialite manner. These photographs engage the audience in a conversation of lost memories and desperately recreated stories of another persons life.
Status poems2008-2009- Using the status' collected from the internet, I comprised poems about the people, using there own words I created new expressions and status sentences for each of them; using there words for my voice.

Panty exchange 2007- internet blog
An exchange blog created to tempt people into exchanging used underwear for other peoples goods. An investigation into a commodities worth from the people who are giving them up. A reversal of need and jealousy, the person giving does not want to give and the person receiving may or may not want to receive there 'gift'.

Do you still love me now? 2006 - Psalter Lane Sheffield
An installation of plastic formed clothing dropped along a trail ending in a one-line, naked faceless woman drawn on a dirty glass window with permanent marker. Next to the image are the words: “Do you still love me now?”
A mixed media series of photographs drawn on to alter the appearance of alien and well known places and locations. These images allow for the imagination to explore the city with a child like fascination and imagination. These vivid images shun the grey monotony of the daily slug allowing the viewer to escape into the realm of play.
Show Suspended- 2006- Psalter Lane Sheffield
