My varied practice navigates through the digital terrain to focus on key subjects of cultural and geo-political interest. I’ve participated in shows at MoMA and The Met, NYC, Pinakothek der Moderne, Munich, Centre Pompidou, Paris, and SODA, Manchester. My works are in public collections including the Arts Council England Collection, The Met, NYC, National Gallery of Art, Washington D.C., North Atlantic Treaty Organisation (NATO), Bavarian State Library, and the University of Salford Art Collection, where I’m the Energy House 2.0 Artist-in-Residence until 2024.
In The Fertile Image (2020–Present), I use Generative Adversarial Networks to produce genealogies of visual descendants from parent images. With Influenzer (2022), I integrate these genealogies into the MyHeritage platform, subverting the site’s AI tools to animate and classify chimaeras from The Fertile Image.
