I am concerned with concepts that challenge the anthropocentrism that has led to an apparent detachment from the natural world: it interrogates change, changing, chance, interconnections and ecologies of connections through immersive participatory installations.

'You shares me shares...everything’,(‘Ysms...e’), is central to my ongoing research, it is continually unfolding, generating more paths for exploration. In this work I combine diverse materials and objects of all kinds gathered from my many environments such as food, water, found objects and living matter including compost, seedlings and snails. These materials are gathered into complex ecologies of staged encounters where hierarchy is lost with the overlapping of projection, sound, text, and human encounters, these overplay and intertwine all imaginable possible parts of existing and new\ environments, situations, places and people. 

An online symposium exploring ideas of basic income and the need for an approach to economy that puts creativity and care at its centre. Led by a panel of artists, researchers, economists, scientists and philosophers, the symposium responds to current and ongoing planetary crises, and positions creativity and social ecology as integral to shaping policy and systems of value.

The Symposium is a joint initiative of Arts Front, BLINDSIDE and Next Wave and was supported by the City of Melbourne COVID-19 Arts Grants.
