I am interested in the relationship between electricity and the body, in particular the role electricity plays in re-stimulating neural pathways.  Advances in medicine, science and technology have enabled surgeons to insert electrodes into the body that bridge the gap between damaged nerve cells, and thus facilitate patients to regain partial or full movement.

My practice explores the material properties required to conduct and insulate electricity as well as their resilience to the body’s immune and natural saline conditions. Through extensive experimentation in glass and copper, which are used in some electrical interfaces, I have adapted and refined traditional glass technique to create a series of freestanding glass sculptures that push the conventional boundaries of function and aesthetics.
