Over the past 20 years, my work has sought to explore themes relating to personal and collective identity, the excavation and examination of historical narrative, and the formulation of perceptions of the racial 'other' through contemporary technologies and popular culture.

As part of a wave of artists of African-Caribbean and South Asian origin who emerged from British Art Schools during the early 1980's, I sought to articulate thematic content through an increasingly diverse range of media which was to lead directly into an engagement with time-based and new digital technologies.

This engagement, over recent years has led to an exploration of the use of user interactivity, both within an installation based gallery context and through other media such as CD-Rom, DVD and the internet, to enable the user to further excavate the content of the work.
