My work concerns itself with notions of absence through the residue of language, I am interested in the itinerant ways language inhabits the body. I am continually investigating the bodys relationship to text. Mindful of the historical precedents that connect text to textiles, I re-activate obsolete writing technologies motivated not from any sense of nostalgia but to reorder the artifacts and paraphernalia associated with these outdated machines and their processes. Drawing on performance, I incorporate my body as a way of transforming moribund information systems to reorder experience.
I seek to explore the relationship or the gap between conventional language structures and corporeal experience. Questioning the way in which texts function in society, my work raises questions about public and private spaces, authority and agency while offering hopeful alternatives to the everyday processes of communication, translation and human exchange.
