My practice is often predicated on a web of references to alternative histories, architecture, intimate public spaces and films. The complex layering of references can give the impression that somebody knows the purpose of the space, what’s happening behind the scenes. This powerlessness offsets the psychological absorption [of the installation] with feelings of exclusions and otherness. That is to say, one is othered or alienated by this work and its specific signifiers because they cannot fully identify with them - one cannot find their own subjectivity reflected in these phenomena, these objects. Thus, the experience of the work as a whole is characterized by alienation.
