Title: See Into The Trees
Date: Jan 2012
Materials: x 3 360mm/360mm laser cut black perspex and MDF

My work is a combination of critical writing and practice-led research in digital art with a particular interest in narrative and interactivity. Themes in the research include literary characterization, identity, folk traditions and popular culture.

See Into The Trees is a new work that plays with the aesthetic of the digital: vectors, geometry and precision, as a way to depict the transformative forest of a contemporary Red Riding Hood.
