Artist’s Statement
“Audience participation, creating discursive and other spaces, experimentation and an intention to change things, are the essence of my practice. I investigate anthropological and social issues including sustainability in the urban/city context and post colonial perceptions through a socially engaged practice. I construct alternative spaces that are discursive, atmospheric and inclusive, inviting the audience to the creative act, through discussion, participation and dialogue.”
