I developed a deep interest in the hegemonic effect that colonisation and global trade has on cultural identity during my time living in Hong Kong.

Library of Acculturation 2020, represents the changes that occur when one cultural body comes into contact with what Gibson refers to as “culturally dissimilar people, groups and social influences” (2001). The result is a set of minimalist sculptural objects that explore the changes in cultural self when steeped in the material of another.

"I am intrigued how we as a collective culture absorb the cultural material of an other. It’s often subtle and over a long period of time. These influences surround us in our daily lives and penetrate us from afar. We are barely aware of it but they all have an effect on our behaviour.  This is acculturation. "
