My multidisciplinary practice addresses communication through voice, language and the interplay between hearing/listening, seeing/reading. Using field recording, digital imaging and the spoken/written word I explore an expanded approach to language within and across species through a framework of everyday experience. The artworks are social in nature and frequently involve collaboration and participation with other artists and with audiences. They take several forms including texts/scores, soundworks, installations, external public artworks, radio, live performance, readings and artists’ books.
Brought up in London UK I studied during the 80s at Wimbledon School of Art and East London University, and arrived in Melbourne Australia as visiting artist through Gertrude Contemporary in the 1990s. My work has been exhibited/performed in Europe, Asia, North and South America. Oceania including Australia and New Zealand, I teach at Swinburne University, Melbourne (MA Writing) and hold a practice-led PhD (Fine Art) through RMIT University, Melbourne.
