Perceiving directly that there is no separation between the environment and us is profoundly different from thinking about it.

Working on the coast in the last few years I found that the sea has its own strong 'local' rhythm of ebb and flow at different sites. Their tidal changes had a profound impact on the perception of participants. I’m interested in local rhythms and work in this piece with inanimate materials, to tap deeper into their rhythmical life cycles. I want to create from seemingly inanimate materials 'living' breathing object/spaces and see how deep they can affect us, and how we affect them.
For Modern Body Festival #02 I was interested to make something so ethereal that every human movement in the space physically impacts it.

Tidal States is an performative installation consisting of multiple super fragile inflated translucent biodegradable cubes from 3x3x3m, animated by pulsing light-rhythms from inside.
