MINE INSTALL #2: LOOPOUS

  “I know who I WAS when I got up this morning, but I think I must have been changed several times since then.” I don’t feel comfortable around people. I don’t feel like myself, I just feel like I am trying to be someone else every time to adjust. I know I don’t need […]

MINE INSTALL #1: THE BED

Beneath the panel were a series of glass bowls or vats with water inside. There was a very crude approach to the […]

The image in the frame is of a hand reaching into blue water and there is a gentle movement of the sun-drenched turquoise […]

James: install 1

Performance, 23rd October 2017. In this performative piece, the real-time sound of my heart beat was broadcast through the PA I was stood facing. There was no start or end point and viewers were able to engage as much or little as desired with the scene in front of them. The sound of the heartbeat […]
