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.


Bio:
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.
