Key themes:

- The mechanism of disposability built into post-millennium society and the experience of instability and precariousness brought about by that.
- Immersive installations and performative sculptures that expose this precariousness and show the diminishing trust we hold in our surroundings.
- A lo-fi aesthetic achieved by the use of recognisable, everyday materials, commenting specifically on our world of throwaway technology and fake realities.
- Use of black humour to scrutinise increasing notions of liquidity and transience in terms of employment, technology and politics.
