For Decorative Use Only was created as an illustration of a survey on 21st century rural village living in the Lincolnshire region. I wished to allow people to express their feelings on what it means to live in smaller communities and how that related to perceptions of the ‘idyll’. For every positive comment that praised community spirit, the quiet life and the beauty of the non-urban environment there was one damning nosy neighbours, close mindedness, lack of facilities or public […]
This multimedia body of work was created as a response to International broadcast news imagery, and the potentially diminished role it plays in an age of total image saturation. Sourced by culling every image from the BBC International website over a month long period in 2010, Desense takes its visual cues from the uncanny world of the paint swatch brochure.

Secondly, it […]

This is a most digital response to a classical theme, which asks questions of what death means in the age of the infinite archive.
