I am drawn to derelict and disused spaces

I like to draw in these spaces but more than that I love to rummage. Digging through the detritus like an unhinged archaeologist or treasure hunter collecting the discarded objects and ephemera from the floors, cupboards and drawers.    

Old maps, architectural drawings, photographs, electrical components,  mechanisms, rusted metal, boxes, glass, architectural salvage, broken plastics and wood. I collect everything. 

I use this discovered treasure, altering the objects themselves or casting them into new forms.  These sculptural elements are often interwoven with drawn and printed elements, sound, light and video to create immersive site specific installations.
