Andrew one of the members of the collective. Apologies if he appears pix-elated, he is just so excited to be part of SPAM… Get it?

I am intrigued by the idea of censorship and how information can be transformed and reduced to a fundamental visual language. I take sourced imagery, some of which has been deemed too graphic or controversial in its content to inhabit the public realm or have simply faded from the public consciousness and I then deconstruct them in order to provoke unexpected emotions or to force the viewer to interact with current and difficult issues from around the world.
