The universal source of communication is through frequency, not language. When you remove the language and a learnt pattern of communication you are left with a range of frequencies. Frequencies are constantly being emitted through our brainwaves, our cellular structure, and our environment, they are interacting and restructuring, creating constant oscillation and movement with all living things.

Through the loss of my own voice, I began to experience Synaesthesia. Synaesthesia is a condition in which someone experiences things through their senses in an unusual way, for example, colour as sound, music as colour, or numbers as a position in space. I became aware that nonverbal and inaudible communication is taking place in the space around us and within us. My process is based on my experience of a sensual, embodied communication within the physical environment through cellular and molecular movement, vibration and sound.

In my practice, I create an experience of that transfer through audible and inaudible information to the viewer bringing into focus the presence of oneself has an effect on their surroundings. To create my work I use various software and hardware applications to explore the deconstruction and transference of sound frequencies.

My practice is informed by scientific evidence and research within the fields of acoustic physics, nanotechnology, biophysics and sonocytology (the study of frequency output by cells). This includes scientific research by Dr. Paul Thomas, Hans Jenny, John Stuart Reid, Ernst Chladni, and the work of Anne Niemetz and Andrew Pelling.
