Ruby’s practice is primarily concerned with the reconstruction of familiar forms to present and document the extraordinary as authentic. A variety of media including paper cut outs, the readymade, animal matter and sounds are collected, manipulated and reassembled to create new ambiguous forms as works on paper, performances, installations, films and pieces of music. These collages aim to present an unnatural history with it’s own folklore, where the boundaries between cryptozoic speculation and scientific evidence are obscured. A fascination with water, particularly wetlands habitat and herpetology roots her material and conceptual investigations. By placing herself within her work, Ruby creates fleeting self portraits which allow for a vicarious existence. Here she is able to document different aspects of her ‘Self’ and embellished accounts of personal experiences, set within her own invented myths. Her music mixes elements of natural sound, high range celestial vocals and inventive  electronic instrumentation to produce original and  dreamy, experimental ‘music from the swamp’.


Local Sound Focus "Totally mesmerising... beautifully complex music... it's electronica with a soul" 

"Louder than War "Let the watery ambience soak through you and you will find yourself singing the chorus in the shower for weeks"
