I am an artist and PHD candidate at the University of the West of England's Digital Culture Research Centre (DCRC), focused on engaging audiences in debate about the monetary, banking and financial system through participatory art.
I am dedicated to creating avenues for understanding money and finance through my creative practice. More specifically, to drawing parallels between magic, myth and finance in order to expose 'rational' economic thought for what it is: magical thinking.
