The centre of my work is an exploration of how we encounter sounds, how we find pleasure through our sense of hearing, and how we create music within ourselves by the act of listening.
I work with the simplest of materials – bits of wood, slabs of slate, water drips, wind, leaves, snail shells – and construct them into sculptural forms that allow their inherent sounds to resonate.
The resulting soundscapes are as simple or as complex as the human observer chooses to make them. I look for a balance between chance and intention, between stasis and change, to hold and stimulate the attention.
