My performance work explicitly emphasizes the tensions and slippages between a fixed idea and the flux of experience. I am interested in integrating simple gestures into vulnerable, intimate or uncontrollable situations. This allows me to continually shift the focus away from the expectations of any given image towards new possible meanings.
