By creating a system of parameters for a process to unfold, I transform, excavate and reveal to seek out unusual and often unseen beauty. While making small transformative gestures by exploiting and discovering unknown qualities in the materials, I slowly and methodically work my way to the centre of the concept. In this case the vessel and more specifically the security envelope and the printing errors contained within. Through gentle excavation I am then able to turn the lens and liberate both material and function, giving new life to something that is overlooked or ignored. Results are a poetic reveal which is both poignant and unexpected.
