I am a London-based Language Artist.

I use language to describe the structure of

video, sound, stories, installations and websites.

Content-wise, I like uncomfortable zoos, corrupted

children’s books and psychology experiments.



Communication through art worries me.

I also work in Brand Strategy so am painfully

aware of the different levels of getting 'it’.



Art is not advertising.

If everyone got 'it'

it would be sad.
