New work

Scientists and psychologists across the world are making the case for psychedelics to be legalised in controlled settings and medicinal contexts to enable us to treat depression, addiction, trauma, PTSD, and fear of death in relation to end of life care.

Studies suggest psychedelics can act as a catalyst to break negative habitual behaviours and thought patterns. I’m drawn to this research as someone who has struggled with my own mental health in the past.

Working with a team of dancers, artists, creative technologists, and psychologists, I will explore cross-disciplinary artistic practice in an attempt to translate certain aspects of psychedelic therapy.
