Projects
  • Digital Classics
    Digital Classics‘Digital Classics’ is a collaborative photographic project drawing inspiration at the intersection of classical and posthuman worlds. By combining Classical and posthuman, the project aims to accept that human nature and its means of self-expression is far from constant and is ever-evolving in our contemporary progressively blurred reality.

  • Derealisation: Virtual Therapy
    Derealisation: Virtual TherapyMy final BA work, 'Derealisation: Virtual Therapy' is a mixed-media creation centred around derealisation.
