With affectual discourses remaining the focus of my work, I have also been developing aesthetical methodologies that explore emotive modes of collecting as sites with the potential for critical engagement in the development of cultural identity, revisionist histories and new narratives. I am particularly interested in the ways that these methodologies of accumulation can engage viewers emotionally. This ongoing work is made out of used make up cotton pads and make up sponges, collected from friends as well as from make up stores bins.

This work was shown as part of the ‘We Sing the Body Electric’ show at the 46 Gallery, curated by the Cole Project.
