Andy works individually and collaboratively across sculpture, performance, moving image, and sound, often in response to characteristics associated with a particular site, context, or discourse. Recent collaborative work has explored large-scale sculptural reconstructions of objects, as a mean of re-examining specific historical, cultural and fictional events. He is currently making sound and light works that utilise live audio feeds, recordings of his own voice, and samples from a range of sources ranging from 70's comedy routines, death metal growls and VLF radio phenomena.
