I find myself being ambiguous.
Collecting, handlings, sourcing, getting lost, fluid finds, improvisational and make up as I go along. I’m drawn to getting wet and using river, floor and bath water as material. Being watery. I spend time in sites and attempt elsewheres. Sighting, writings, sitengs, sitings, citings, sittings. I follow feathers. Shy away, Attempt timings. Climatizing myselves. Privately public. Goings on include performance or sculpture, sound, drawing, video, music. The Thames foreshore is a place I think, watch the river, and look at stones.
