I am an artist currently based in Johannesburg.
My interests in process, knowledge, agency, and structure find their expression in the growing use of technology in our day-to-day lives. In my practice I’m concerned with my/our capacity to choose, and to act, in environments that are becoming ever more organized with the spread of consumer technologies and electronic devices. And by the accompanying formal structures influencing our behaviour that emerge within, or enable this process of organization. With varying degrees of success and intent, I try and turn the act of getting beaten up by computers and similar structures and processes into something everyone can enjoy.

I have a Master’s Degree in Digital Arts from The University of the Witwatersrand, where I also lecture in physical computing and networked media practices
