My current practice is an ongoing experiment in adaptation, information transference and learned behaviour. I recently abandoned all of my traditional methods of working, by subjecting myself to foreign environments such as deserts, snow and logging plantations and unfamiliar creative processes by using stilts and suspending myself from trees. These projects involve stripping away the barriers created by complexity, mastery and familiarity, in order to subject myself to constructed limitations. I have established a platform where I use the new limitations of the unknown and the challenges associated with adaptation, to reduce the act of creation to its most basic form, with the intention of revealing a truth within my work. The insights gained by utilizing philosophical principles to establish a space for self-awareness, has allowed me to redefine my creative process to observe the physical and psychological transformations that take place. My aim is to examine my body on a cellular level, by re-training my motor neurons to perform unfamiliar acts, with my body becoming an extension of the tools I would normally use to create. I am interested in the cross over point where the limitations and challenges, assist and inform me through a method of repetition, trial and error. I establish a central link with the immediate environment I work in, as a means to transcend and detach myself from the work I am producing. These projects are a self-observation into the process of formation through restraint and failure, which I view as a ‚Äúdissection of discipline‚ÄĚ.
My work is mainly installation based, comprising of digital video, painting, photography, drawing and sound.
