Selected Projects



An Exploration of Practice: Communion ︎


A prose poem and instructional pamphlet describing consciousness & spiritual practice installed within the LUMIN curated exhibition Communion. The installation explored landscapes, nature reverence, meditation, balance, and poetic space.



1a Inverness Place residency: Made in Roath ︎ 


A two week residency at Made in Roath’s space on the intersections of ecology, spirituality and the post-colonial. Involving installation, libraries, radical printing, dialogues / collaborations, research and film. A rhizomatic, intuitive exploration of the intersecting disciplines. 



A New Mecca ︎


An ongoing project working with Gentle/Radical in Cardiff. The first stage involved workshops on bookmaking, zines and peacebuilding, alongside screenprinting with Sadia Pineda Hameed. The second stage involved a gala night at the 80th anniversary of The Temple of Peace. Reinterpreting the archives, I created a film juxstaposing Maya Deren’s films with the archival footage of the unheard voices of women from the buildings opening ceremony. I also wrote and performed an experimental dual spoken word performance with an installationthat deconstructed the buildings crypt below the performance space. Upcoming stages of the project to come in 2020.
