I am interested in the sensuality found in the banal, in particular, the bleeding of repressed desire into one's own perception, behaviours and practices. Working with imagery from my own photographic archive and drawing from the theories of Wilhelm Reich, my work attempts to emulate the libidinally charged environment of Reich's 'orgone accumulators' by creating a circuit of desire. The photographs are installed directly onto metallic walls imbuing the space with a latent eroticism and an overtly sordid charge. Due to the reflective nature of the metal walls, the kinetic charge is then bounced throughout the space and back onto the perceiving body. Every element is permeated by desire.
