SHIFTING PRESENCE 2018
My aim with this body of work is to explore and to visualise my uncomfortableness of being human.
By using a metaphor of the body as a vessel, a contained shape in this case, and having it’s location change, fade and interact with itself, I was to portray my need for constant change, trying to become comfortable, and the resulting restlessness and ill-ease with remaining still.
Born in the UK, 1963, lives and works in Sydney, Australia. BA Design, 1983.
