Research interests

Shame
AV performance, Oxo Tower, London. As part of the apocalyptic tradition, the research addresses the human impact on the natural landscape to reveal the continued toll humans leave on the planet. The work encompasses oil fields, deforestation, genocide in the Amazon rainforest, toxic waste sites, forests ravaged with fire and flooding. The work reveals a series of terminal landscapes as an incitement toward a more critical view of power relations that influence our notions of the natural terrain as valuable natural resource. 

Space Interface Project
AV performance presented to an audience that embraces the problem of: 1) space-blindness, 2) buildings limited by unimaginative conventions and 3) rigid procurement laws. Iteratively developed over three years and five venues spanning Germany and UK, the research contributes to architectural design through the synthesis of situated cognition and new media interfaces. Space Interface received funding from Arts Council England and Kulturförderung & Dinnebier Licht GmbH. Performed at Weithorn Galerie, Düsseldorf (2015), Lichtturm Solingen, NRW (2016), KARST gallery, Plymouth (2016) and The Atlantic Project, Plymouth (2018).

Open State

A digital environment, enabling multicultural performers with disabilities to communicate was created as an ‘intelligent’ platform. Rather than the ‘classical’ model of mute bodies and blank spaces upon which the choreographer works (Melrose & Butcher 2005), the research advanced a technological-space interface that extends accessibility through virtual exchange. Open State received funding from Art and Culture Promotion Fund, Arts Council Tokyo & Great Britain Sasakawa Foundation. Premiered at Tokyo Art Centre, Japan, 2015 and The House, Plymouth, 2017.
