I find myself being ambiguous.
Collecting, queer 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. Watery attempts at elsewheres. Sightings, writings, sitengs, sitings, citings, sittings. I follow feathers. Shy away, Attempt timings. Transitories Climatizing myselves. Privately public. Goings on include performance, sculpture, writing, sound, drawing, video, music. The Thames foreshore is a place I just sit, rivering or looking at stones.
