The work is about power, politics, people, play and perceptions of reality.  It is informed by debates and events of the time in which it was created.  Through the recontextualisation of media images and everyday material a new narrative is presented.  The intention is to create works that engage the viewer in a conversation on ethical, political and social issues.
