    About the artist

    The creation of my work explores determinism. Each subject is interviewed about how they came to their particular position in life. Within this I'm looking to explore how time and place has more effect than perceived choice. How lives are shaped by random uncontrollable events, not general providence. As Marx put it "Men make their own history, but they do not make it as they please; they do not make it under self-selected circumstances, but under circumstances existing already, given and transmitted from the past."
