My work focuses on the creation and innovation of hybrid art forms. I view these forms as an extension of the space of theatre; not as a mere spectacle of emotions, but hybrids so far extended they have been separated from the original. These forms retain characteristics of theatre by exploring the notion of language as an incantation. In this way, my work functions as a conduit which spans physical and virtual spaces imbued with the intimacy of a Chinese scroll painting - the surface of which is a vast, electrified book powered by the semiotic nature of words, images and sounds.
