My recent works examines the relationship between power, space, and the body. I try to imagine where the body is situated in historical spaces such as Plantations in the South or Pententiaries and Prisons in the US and Australia. My research includes how architecture that is used to protect might also imprison and used to reinforce and maintain an imbalance of shared power. These ideas have been an evolving interest since my early career, where I explored domestic spaces in Australia. This research was followed by works made in decommisioned prisons and former plantations in the southern states of the USA.
