The content Boyd is drawn to, tends to embrace the fugitive, immaterial or ethereal. He employs diverse craft-biased channels, in order to materialise these fleeting observations. Boyd often documents phenomena refracted by the urban environment, permeating the domestic. His research orbits pop cultural and art historical content which, in turn, harbour traces of much wider philosophical and scientific debate.
