The focus of my practice is on objects and spaces on the edges of ownership. My field of practice encompasses video performance and installation. My methods involve utilizing play, one take only recordings, making from a child making perspective, travelling, taking risks, humour, searching and collecting. Movement helps structure my own knowledge of the world, space, time and relationship to others. Collecting allows me to gather my thoughts through things. I create performances in public space, on verges and with dumped objects. I’m interested in the tensions that I identify between spaces. This comes from my personal experience of not knowing where to ‘fit’ in the world. In my life this relates to being gay, in a significant age gap relationship, past experiences of homelessness, learning difficulties and abandonment. Putting my body in the work allows me to search for my own language alphabet/code. Finding out what is acceptable and normal as well as the edges of myself. I feel this can be achieved through systems I identify as ambiguous. The space between things allows me to be me in the world and for me to make sense of the world.
