My practice is built around a commitment to projects that engage with physical and social momentums of change in public space.
Over the last 15 years I have worked in contexts ranging from remote landscape to inner cities. During this time I have developed participatory and collaborative techniques through projects ranging from temporary events/installations to large-scale permanent artworks and cultural strategies for programmes of urban change.
I am passionate about the idea that working in public space is a specialised form of cultural practice. I believe that it requires it’s own critical forums and research base in order to take its place as a valued and legitimate artform.
I do not make work in public as a means to support my ‘real’ practice– I make art in public because without the context of public space I have no idea how to begin to make art.
In my experience collaboration is one of the key common denominators across public practice – I am very interested in the idea that Intersections is an organisation built on the idea of actively collaborating on projects.
