My work often takes form through moving image, stills and texts presented as events, performances and installations. Amongst other things, recent work has explored the trance state as a site of production, drawing on the register of the pre-emptive voice and role of the script. My research stems from a physical 'participation' in the content of enquiry – attending hypnosis sessions to record the spoken script as basis for a screenplay, or working with a Mah Jong group to become game-players in a fiction – conflating the sites of encounter and production so that the two become bound together. I understand my approach to making as a series of Russian dolls that fit inside one another, a body of interlinked bearers of information.

I also make work with Joyce Cronin through the project CATALOG, and with Sol Archer in an ongoing collaboration, The earth is not at rest.
