My practice explores, questions, uncovers and celebrates the everyday. Our whole existence takes place in everyday life, a constructed realm of routine and normality defined by our significant others; all that we take for granted. As Henri Lefebvre stated: “Man must be everyday or he will not be at all”. My work, at its core, observes the inherent need of human beings to externalise their experiences; their everyday remnants. Seemingly insignificant repeated behaviours can be traced back to unexpectedly profound motivations, there is an enjoyment in this duality within the mundane everyday action.

Using formations of multiples across various media, I produce aggregates of everyday remnants which celebrate the plurality of humankind: “Man’s uniqueness his non-repeatability, is an ontological fact” (Agnes Heller). At first glance, each multiple may appear the same, however on closer inspection each one is unique, the continual repetition echoing daily routine.
