Practice

My research examines creative practices of performance, production and dissemination. In keeping with the ethnographic ideals of embodied experience and observant participation, I enjoy experimenting with different ways of working made possible by the intersections between academic research and art practice. These include exhibitions, residencies, podcasts, and more.
