The history of New Media and the avant-garde from the Futurists and Russian Constructivists to Bauhaus and the theories of Artaud, have had a significant impact on my work. I draw direct inspiration from two artists, Futurist, Luigi Russolo, who wrote the manifesto on the Art of Noise and Oskar Schlemmer (1888-1943), who was interested in spatial webs and defining new theories of space. I want to continue their investigation of architectural and theatrical space, especially Artaud's notion of "spatial poetry".

Fascinated by the notion of being between two worlds and I can strongly identify with this place of being betwixt and between; between cultures, between languages, between social patterns and ritual, between political viewpoints and historical dynamics. Between theatre and anthropology, between poetry and multi-media, between art and technology, between public space and private space, I find my artistic voice and palette.
