I am a Melbourne based artist whose practice archives the material impact humanity is having on our climate and environment, while simultaneously grappling with my accumulative obsession with the botanic. I archive the multisensory renditions of suburban Melbourne's contemporary condition and come home to my hoard of 120 plants. The harsh chemicals intrinsic to the darkroom process grounds me in the hypocrisy of my own practice and the undeniable consumerism that art participates in. Ultimately, using photographic film allows me to step away from the immediate gratification that, as a society, we have become so reliant on. Consequently, I end up obsessively developing negatives late into the evening in my rundown Coburg shed.
