I am a visual artist, arts organiser an
d workshop facilitator. I was previously trained in Building Science before studying at The Glasgow School of Art, Sculpture and Environmental Art.

My practice is informed by the shifting ecological and sociopolitical landscapes.

I am currently working on a project ‘We Cannot Continue to Keep On’ a study on hydro-politics, hydro-logics and distribution of the commons.

I am exploring the mapping of race and incorporeality within the social, political and environmental implications of water to address the persistent currents of scarcity and entitlement.

This project considers the intersections of water politics with coloniality, privilege, and power and gathers from the knowledge and lived experiences of farmers, geographers, environmental scientists and activist groups.

Session 1: QANAT - Hydrofutures Marrakech
17 Feb  - 7 Mar 2020


Studying the traditional ways of water collection and distribution through the ancient aquifiers of khettara and reimagining possible newarrangements and collective use of water through writing and speculative fiction.

Session 2: Waste to Water - Singapore 

April 2020

Studying Singapore as a site of lack of natural resources - seawater and waste water consist of a big proportion of its drinkable water. To think around water as archive, this period of research looks at the stories of women of color, who have been historically marginalized and under-documented in the archival records.
