- Trap DoorDegree show piece for Goldsmiths Fine Art BA 2020 which received First Class Honours. This project uses sculpture and digital imaging as a way to reinhabit a place and state of mind, disorientating atmosphere with physical absence and remains.

Work used for foundation exhibition poster Final piece incorporated sculpture, film and installation concerning: -Seeing and image reading in relation to space and dimension -Inversion/negation/resistance manifest foremost through material (casting, translucency, digital glitching) The sculptural elements were made through casting marbled plaster and concrete lined with paper.

These sculptures were then combined with projected film that played with optical distortion and illusion.
