"I examine notions and ideas around nature and culture, considering what sort of division can exist between them. I have used material culture that comes from science and its varied systematic methods in the form of books, maps, diagrams, furniture and tools.

There is some inherent contradiction in this effort to bring together order and disorder, the useful and the useless, unearthing the coded enigmas of our relationship to the environment. I have responded to scientific culture in an attempt to embrace its limits, maybe turn it back onto itself, finding a crack, subjectivising something meant to be objective."
