My work is concerned with the idea of binary opposites, the central/peripheral nature of modern thinking. We divide ourselves off from what we call the "natural" world. A bird builds a nest and we consider it natural, we build a car and we consider it to be artificial. This effects the way we relate to our environment, as we adopt a stance of being"outside" of the natural world. There are many other instances of oppositional thinking, man/woman, wrong/right, human/animal, black/white, developed/undeveloped, left/right. All these oppositions are divisive and reductive, it is their power that I use as a catalyst to make work that questions these artificial language based divisions.
