project description:
Standing in front of large mirrors wearing a latex body suit, a performer chooses from a series of tubes, attaches one to a mouthpiece and blows. A compartment in the suit then inflates and transforms a body part - enlarging or varying the shape. She (the performer) will then experiment with different combinations of body modifying inflations. The project is presently unnamed.

My work is concerned withmaking physical representations of emotions and memories through experimentation with the spaces my body occupies. The works are usually on video projections, but can involve a live element. My video pieces have recently been shown on Channel 4 television, and featured in the BBC British Short Film Festival 1999.
