As an artist and facilitator George explores human connection under technological networks, and how bodies, perceptions of us, and language inform our engagements with environments and interfaces. They use self-portraiture, performance, photography, poetry, sound, film, drawings, paintings, sculptures, and scientific installations, as mediums to examine barriers and polarities of social exchanges within shared physical and virtual spaces. Often they use the visual vocabularly and characters embedded in cyberspace, fiction, and autobiography to converse and colloborate with communities.

Recent dialogues include paintings assessing the intersection of disability in the construction of queer spaces, establishing messaging services with autistic individuals within support centres and collaboratively producing films, constructing personas to enter organisations and media platforms documenting and mutually challenging power structures, interventions within museum collections responding to allegories of performance around masculinity, investigating relationship between steroid culture and online chatrooms restaging rituals through abstract superimposed photographs, composing IRL avatars which subvert and reimagine scenes in paralells of video games and art history with autonomy instead of objectification, and installations merging paintings and scientific apparatuses assessing sensoriums in medical facilities.

Through locating and merging evidence, performance, speculative fiction, and imagination, Morl seeks to reveal the relationship between barriers and power dynamics in these systems and spaces, whilst attempting to affect integrative and collaborative approaches between organisations, collections, and communities. As a result, in presentation work collectively reflects on posing questions and solutions around our existence in a modernising multidimensional hyperdigital future.
