I am a photographer and academic currently teaching at Manchester School of Art, MMU in the UK. My creative practice research elaborates on a new materialist approach to working in an algorithmically determined 3D photographic digital space. I have exhibited my work nationally and internationally and delivered papers at the 8th International Conference on the Image (2017), in Venice, Italy, titled Virtuality, Photography and Abstraction and Times and Movements of the Image International Conference, Caldas da Rainha and Lisbon, Lisbon Virtually Actual; the circuit of movement 2019.
I am is currently studying for a PhD at MMU. My thesis asks ‘How is Photography Performed in a Virtual Digital Photographic Space?' I have developed a specialist interest in phenomenology and non-human agency that is expressed through my practice as well as theories surrounding New Materialisms, the Virtual/Actual and the Posthuman.
I am also currently leading the design of an innovative curriculum for a new School of Digital Arts at MMU which is due to open in September 2021.
