My current PhD practice led research at ANU in Sculpture began in June 2011, exactly two years after my wife and I dispatched an 18 cubic meter-shipping container filled with a carefully considered and condensed collection of our lives’ belongings from Portland, Oregon to Canberra, Australia. This action not only started a new chapter for us, but the experience cemented my interest in the idea of the modern shipping container as an agent of transference.

Beyond my personal experience, I believe that the invention and implementation of the simple structure of the shipping container has led to a duality of global developments for both people and places that now connect, affect and aid their separate growth and abilities. My practice led research therefore focuses on the constructs of the modern shipping container to widely explore its analogous affect upon the transference of agency for both people and places within a sculpture-based context.
