Lives and works in Wollongong

My practice pivots on the transformative relationship between art and technology. My works draw from philosophical and scientific enquiries to investigate materialist practices and processes. In particular, I am interested in how the textual imprints of media and materials in artworks shape our experience.

My works have been exhibited across Australia and in international programs such as No References: A Revisit of Hong Kong Video and Media Art, Hong Kong (2016), No Trans-national–Liquid Borders and Empty Promises at the ISE Cultural Foundation, New York, (2012), Loop Festival (2015) in Barcelona, Both Sides Now 2 (2015) which toured Hong Kong, Shanghai, London, Manchester, Brighton and other cities in the UK. My screen works have received awards including the Silver Spire Award at the San Francisco International Film Festival (1996).

My objects and installation works were included A Working Model of the World (2017) at UNSW Art Galleries, Awfully Wonderful (2011) at Performance Space and in BEAPworks (2004) at the Perth International Art Festival. I was the Australia Council’s artist-in-residence in Tokyo in 2008 where I produced the online work, Autumn Almanac of Tokyo which later led to The Illustrated Almanac of the Illawarra and Beyond (2011 – 2). The print editions of The Illustrated Almanac is scheduled to be exhibited at the Wollongong Gallery in August 2017.

My recent collaborative projects include Twilight States and the Edges of Darkness with Agnieszka Golda and Martin Johnson (2016), Sixty Second Thoughts (2013-5) with Ali Jane Smith, and A World of Things (2015) with Redmond Bridgeman at the Huw Davies Gallery, ACT.

I lecture in media arts at the University of Wollongong, Australia.
