As a follow up to the performance to the sheep I thought it might be interesting to perform to the bottle lambs as they have not been raised to fear new things as such. The lambs were much more curious, clambering all over me, nibbling on my prosthetics and what looked...

This last weekend I wanted to take my “mole” piece into a different setting. What would the animal me look like in the context of other animals? As it is lambing season I’ve been asked back to help with the lambing with my folks. It occurred to me that it would be inte...

Continuing on with the theme of collaborating with all of my mates, I recently joined up with Magda Wojtas . My friend Magda creates colourful embroideries and garments, filled with sequins, glitter and gems. She tells me her recent work is inspired by human’s treatmen...

For a while now I’ve planned to film my movements in the dark, there’s something really freeing about the idea of fumbling about in the dark unseen by human eyes, perhaps seen by other creatures with the right attributes. This use of infrared might be me wanting to cap...

 Last Wednesday I took  part in Lucy's fun and playful performance where we posed as fairly unconvincing, colourful plants in the cafeteria. It was fun having people interact with me after a while it almost seemed as though they didn't realise I was human because my fa...

After working with the dancers this week I have some more thoughts about possible group performances. I found having others interprat my work really rewarding and this allowed me to think outside of myself when cconsideing my work. I'm used simply using my own body as...

 For a while now I've been considering working with a dancer, just someone who knows how to move their body. Lucy Whittaker has a background in dance, as I collabated with her work last Tuesday she agreed to take part in my work. We did this clothed as I resp...
