‘History of the Future’ 2009-2011
‘History of the Future’
I worked collaboratively with artist Tim Fielding during of our Master of Fine Art studies at Liverpool Art and Design Academy from 2008-2010. We continued working together until 2011 when an extremely sad event occurred that meant we were no longer able to work together. The work we made collaboratively was really special.

With ‘History of the Future’ we created a complex work that critiques political ideologies, social systems and the impact of art, design and architecture, prompting questions relating to the fabric of our built environment; how it has developed in the way it has, who makes these decisions and, ultimately, what effect the place we live in has on the quality of our lives.
