Research interests

My research is principally practice led and studio based. A recurring question is how new technologies impact on previous processes, in particular within the practice of drawing and its methods of tracing and how we can interpret, analyse and reconstruct new meanings of authorship. Main research interests are the history and practice of tracing, actionglyphs (the graphic motion supplements of comic books and animated films), printmaking, collage, rotoscoping, motion, movement, embodied actions and the semiotics of two-dimensional motion representations.
