Senior Lecturer, Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art and Design, University of Dundee


I am an artist working with film, photography, archive material and publication in the widest sense. I strongly believe that art is about working with people to explore our changing world.

I have a particular interest in the intersection of art, science and technology in the landscape- both in physical space and in the imagination. I also make playful works including signage and ceramic editions which explore our relationship with land, cultivation and gardens.

I was shortlisted for ‘Research Film of the year 2019’ for my work “Soundings” which worked with sound artists, composers and geographers to explore coastal change in North Norfolk. Project partners included the National Trust, wildlife organisations, local schools and a wide range of voices from the communities. previous projects have explored the remains of the UK fission research programme, the last WW2 fighter base in use during its closure, New Town dreams, and DNA pioneers.

My work has been featured in a wide variety of contexts- including Kassel International Documentary Festival, International Symposium of Electronic Arts (ISEA), Rome Media Art festival, and during the 50th anniversary of the discovery of DNA’s structure at the Wellcome Trust, London.

I have received substantial funding from public agencies.
