free spirit

The projection of abstracted brain structures on the surface of a wall directly controlled and shaped by the viewer’s behavior - their presence creating a dynamic interaction which the installation graphically reflects. The installation invites public engagement, elicits viewer interaction and manifests as a spectacle - The improvised fusion of art, technology, and the body of the participant gives rise to a unique performance.

Director Statement

Since I started creating, I am continually challenged by my own practice to alternately explore multiple media including sculpture, video installation and stage design. My work has always explored the relationship between art and social connections. I have collaborated with writers, musicians and dancers.

For about twenty years my main theme has been to model human behavior under extreme conditions such as fear, violence, pressure or death. In this I am especially intrigued by the neurological and cognitive processes that are difficult to record purely scientifically. I want to provoke a new perception of the processes at the interface of biological determination and human consciousness. I am interested in creating a new pictorial language as the expression of brain functions and human awareness, using the biological body, metaphysical symbols, and the crystalisation of the spoken word.
