Late for the Party is a single-channel, video triptych that investigates the relationships between the body as sculpture, the body as a site of subversion, and the gestural response of sculpted form to time, space and light.

The Middle is Gold is a composition that explores acts of presence pertaining to concepts of self through the act of improvised, irrational rhythms. The imposed colour on and inconsistent pulsing of the constructed character investigates the relationship between light and gestural movement. The light affects the movement of the body, and in turn, the body reflects the light.
Coat of Arms (Black Dwarves) references the familial relationship that exists between distinct classes of stars known as dwarf stars. This piece measures time in relationship to the movement of sculptural objects within a space.
Silence (Black Mountain) performs the repetition of mechanical movements as experienced by the body. Using tactile fabrics to build form around the body, the performed action creates visual rhythms, while the sculpted form gradually begins to replace the body of it's creator.
