My research overarchingly encompasses human-animal relationships and their influential or resulting geographies. Via a deeper focus on commodity structures and sustainable actions within traditional communities, I attempt to discern the nature of behaviors and discarded histories. My art practice employs natural utilitarian animal materials such as wool and beeswax, expended industrial items, and performativity to communicate in both traditional, and community-based modes of art engagement. Primarily working with sheep and wool production as both a source material and historical research base, I travel to isolated farm regions throughout the world investigating communities, textiles, natural food production, alternative commodity systems, and human-animal histories through my work as a sheep shearer. The result is both an artistic, and analytical reference to engage the public with a historic subject that informs the trajectory of the human condition.
