My practice explores new possibilities in photographic image-making using analogue and digital processes and aleatory techniques. Like many others, the pandemic overwhelmed me with a need to fill time with something meaningful and escape the confines of home and be in nature. Inspired by my work as a photographer for an arboretum, intrigued by deepfake software and experimenting with AI art making apps, I began to cultivate Content Aware Gardens – artificial greenspace reproductions made in collaboration with AI. They are reimaginings of the beautiful chaos of forests and gardens, and a digital sanctuary from the current moment.
