As an Artist I am currently expanding on my Sociological and Interpreting backgrounds to explore power relations in language and translation. Using various visual processing methods and communication methods (including British Sign Language, semaphore signals and more recently visual effects) as my material and research as my starting point I continue to explore ways in which Art and language can be brought together to challenge assumptions and raise critical questions. My work often resides within a feminist framework and I have worked recently with filmed performance, video, photography and interactive installation.
