My practice utilises the concept of time travel to observe two hyperobjects that continue to change the course of humankind – digitisation and capitalism.
The works examine modes of capitalistic conditioning in society and its ongoing effects on human behaviour, consumption and ecology.
This page features works that belong to my archive of artefacts from the past and future.

Through genetic engineering the DNA of the Silver Maple tree, its impressive natural carbon fixing traits can be enhanced and transferred to any other species of plant, in this case a ficus elastica commonly known as a rubber plant.
