A sideways writing of the intimate objects of travel.

The piece confounds the conventional expectation of travel to expand self-knowledge of the traveller, yet it also speaks of the impossibility of leaving the self behind. A sentence in France was determined by the baggage that was carried around inside and as well as with.

It is a map, graffiti, a measure of time.

In my writing practice I combine strategies of collage, procedural writing, translation and visual poetics in an attempt to encourage the form of my writing to ‘find itself rather than replicate itself’. I work in digital media for its ease of dissemination and possibilities for layering and collage, while also exploring ‘book’ making - which I enjoy for its sculptural qualities - and performance. 

My work investigates the political disenfranchisement of the individual and ways of (re)constructing politicised subjectivities.
