My artistic investigations and production focusing on the politics of space. WHISPERS: Can you hear the enemy? explores physical and mental spaces that endure(d) drama, and the relationship between space, memory and history, and increasingly the notion of the trace. In several pieces weeds and plants are identified as authors, historians and witnesses having an imaginary conversation. The images, weeds and grasses are from sites in Vietnam, South Africa, Spain, Iran among others. 
When working with exterior spaces, I am interested in looking at what I call charged sites, sites endowed with significant histories. However, my images offer little or no discernible evidence of this history, either the past event or any current tensions associated with it, the implications being that significance can only be materialized by human experience. 
The work is exhibited combining wallpaper, cyanotypes, digital c-prints and pressed out grass/weed and objects.
