STATEMENT

At the centre of many of my projects there is a fascination with how movement can be felt before it actualizes – taking form is a key to a developing vocabulary of movement that foregrounds incipience rather than dis-placement, provoking exploration into how thought works, where creation begins, what constitute novelty and how thinking through movement can alter the force of thought.

Processes of association, appropriation, extraction, justaposition, distortion and fragmentation are vital approaches in order to create ‘apertures’ which rather than arriving at end-objects, or fulfilling objective ends, are carried by wavelike tendencies, in a rollover of experiences continually substituting for each other.

The work is shaped by an interdisciplinary approach, which involves the flowing between writing on page/screen, performance in time, still and moving image,  individual and collective actions.
