About nanotopia

My work explores Terrestrial manifestations through combining tactile,
sculptural forms, and audio; creating immersive environments, unNatural History
Dioramas, and performative, wearable structures questioning Human origin and
mythos.
My ‘jewelry’ serves as maquettes and experiments towards my sculptural work.
The majority of my work draws from my fascination with the artistic
representation of natural history, the creation of fictitious places in literature and
my interest in Cordyceps fungus – in particular; Cordyceps unilateralis, a species
of entomopathogenic fungus that infects and alters the behaviour of ants in order
to ensure the widespread distribution of its spores.
The body of work, An unNatural History created for Urban Glass Brooklyn and
featured during SOFA, NY 2009 is an example of this passion to bring the
microcosmos to the macro through metal, glass, mixed/multi-media, often
'wearable' maquettes.
If we can say that the world of science is synonymous with truth and the world of
art with that of fiction, I want to tread a middle ground that is unusual and
seemingly beyond belief, yet also familiar.
