Professional membership

Senior Fellow Higher Education Academy


The relationship between objects and the body, and of objects to one another is intrinsic to the haptic and spatial curiosity at the heart of my sculptural research. Drawing from Bruno Latour, James Elkin, Jane Bennet's theories on things, and Tim Ingold and Richard Sennet's writing on making, I implement methods by which my decisions are governed by the behaviour of materials. 

Additionally, in collaboration with Natasha Kidd, I am engaged in a collaborative practice. Consistent with our own individual research in to the conditions of making, our collaborative research explores learning as form. Often sited in other organisations; galleries, museums, symposia, our performances and live events are designed to stage learning away from the constraints of academia. Often making reference to historical and contemporary art practice, and frequently subverting mainstream educational mechanisms, we deliberately position ourselves alongside other participants, divesting ourselves of institutional power relations.
