My art practice has involved scanning trees, coding virtual forests, wiring plants to computers, and projecting into woodland. The forest (particularly Vallis Vale) is a recurring motif in my work as I navigate it’s ancient mystical roots in relation to the radically technologized world surrounding it. My ideas come from reading scientific findings, theory or folklore, usually found on the internet, then communicating this using technology and nature. I embrace the internet as a hub of fact and fiction, so in one tab I could be reading a herbal magic blog while the next tab shares the latest scientific research into how trees communicate.
