I don’t want to know what you know I want to know what you don’t know.
I use my practice as a critical lens to examine contemporary storytelling, the work makes the verbal and vocal visual. My writing practice presents a type of case study for my everyday encountering, the meta-narrative investigates the in-betweenness of objective and imagined realities. The documentation of my practice is series of images. The images are not performances or installations but attempts to visually articulate an archive of activities. Sometimes presented as art or at times serving as a function. The central theme within my practice is liveness. The spectator is confronted by moments of exchange, unexpected dialogues and contingent choices. The spectator will experience themes of uncertainty, failure, non-meaning, ambiguity and the position of doubt. I invite the spectator into a visual space where they become part of the meaning verses the non-meaning.
