SOMETIMES THESE THINGS ARE DONE
shadow the vanishing point, out on the marsh, in all directions
Comprised of an eclectic material-based installation and durational performance; just beyond the edge of public space, upon a windswept marsh- from a temporary site-specific public monument/station/platform (constructed from reclaimed materials), a series of actions, sounds, and images, were ‘transmitted’ to the greater public. The project utilized processes and materials of sound, performance, storytelling, and drawing. Partakers are obliged to view the work from a distance, and through additional means (i.e. observational listening devices, binoculars, etc.), further provoking ideas of public engagement.
ABOUT TEENAGE SATANISTS, SPILLING BLOOD UNTIL IT RUNS BLACK...
A meandering performative slide-lecture exploring regional supernatural folklore. Delving into ghost stories, heavy metal youth culture, and occult-ritual; exploring the fear and paranoia that can easily overtake a small town where everyone knows everyone else.
I USED TO BE A PERFORMANCE ARTIST, BUT THEN JOHN RITTER DIED...
An informal ‘lecture-based’ performance (visual and oral) investigation into a childhood preoccupation with American sitcom star John Ritter; the pressures that come from growing up in a rural community where storytelling is valued above all else; and what it might mean to become an artist, however unintentional. Generally received as a ‘comedic work’, it seeks to challenge the relationship and interconnections between personal history, pop culture, and contemporary art; drawing links between a childhood fascination with television sitcoms, religious ideals, and performance art.
