The culmination of a two year project inspired by manga, surrealism and film noir and set in Japan post the Great East Earthquake of 2011

Initially fascinated by the apparent inability to evacuate Tokyo in the case of a major disaster, I wanted to explore what it is like to live there.

I was confronted by a culture that still surprises me in both its traditions, and in its innovations and how they co-exist in this inescapable bubble.

I strive to use a visual narrative to question our relationship with the world and with each other regardless of origin. To focus on connection and the strong visceral relationships equally found with people, places, animals and objects.

It is a quest to explore the layers between things, memories, human connection, fear and escapism through the fantasy and metaphor I find in reality.
