My interdisciplinary works have been inspired by my immediate surroundings, whether they encompass the sea, land or city. Primarily through a photographic practice, I have developed a trajectory of enquiry about the constructed environment in where we live, in which the stillness of architecture is synonymous with the immobility of the photographic image. My intention has been to disrupt this stillness with the layering of movement through a combination of traditional techniques and special effects using multimedia. Using these methods of representation, I have captured images of specific structures, or landmarks that focus the eye and configure the imagination. I consider these focal points to be topophilic, in that they are indicators of particular places that promote human identities and a sense of belonging.
