During my MFA 2002-4 , my research and practice culminated in a series of work on Blackboards. I am interested in the evolution of writing as a form of human communication and embedded in the work are writings that have been fully or partially erased. Written language, being a trace of what has preceded. I am interested in showing that meaning does not have one origin, and that one should challenge the fallacy of given knowledge being the truth. The broader influences on my work are my interests in language, semiotics and mapping.
