Organised by Photomonitor and chaired by Kim Shaw, Executive Director of Photofusion, Material Matters: On making and the physicality of photography,  focused on the importance of materiality in photographic practice. I shared panel with Sophy Rickett, Martin Newth, Edouard Taufenbach and Dafna Talmor. 




October 2016. Artist talk at TATE Britain.

During this artist talk I presented the work Self Expanded which is going to be on display at the Mozilla Festival 2016, Ravensbourne College, London. 

The series Self-Expanded  uses #selfie pictures from Instagram to reflect on the commodification of the self through technology development and the networked image. The images are digitally projected onto expanded metal meshes and printed with the nineteenth century technique of wet collodion to create unique objects from ephemeral portraits. The expanded metal meshes physically represent the online nets in which digital images are developed and consumed.
