I am an independent researcher based in Mid-Wales. My particular interests lie in the use of digitised artefacts and their reinforcement of a social hierarchy that excludes the majority. I am also interested in the role of the digital in the erosion of truth and authenticity and its role in the creation of a post-truth society.
