Fiction haunts reality like fog precedes a cold morning. Through sustained research projects, my practice explores the anomalous fictions which shape and arise from our contemporary networked lives; those narratives which creep from the imaginary into reality through the media and communication technologies via which they are told. Using expanded approaches to moving image, incorporating installation, live events, writing and workshops, my works reflect upon the continual ‘weirdening’ of online and offline life.
