I am a performance designer and visual artist. My personal work often adopts the act of play as a means of devising performance, utilising and adapting toys/ready made objects to surreal effect. I am fascinated by simple acts of playful exploration and physicality, and so explore the performative potential of these through experimentaion and documentaion.
This utilization of play as a tool in the development and delivery of performance I explore further, and in a group setting, through my performance workshop The Ludens Lounge.
I am serious about play.
As a professional I have over 13 year experience as a maker and designer. Details of past commercial projects can be found at the link below to my studio website.
