I make work in a number of ways including, drawing, performance, sculptural installation and computer programming. Some of my interested include language and translation, using chance operations to make decisions with the use of computing, dance and sport


I have been interested in ways to find new choreographic material, the use of random operations to make choices, and the ways that language is translated into movement. I coded a computer program that generate random instructions for movement, I printed 50 of these generated instructions and bound them in a book and recorded myself performing the 50 instructions.
Some instructions seem impossible to perform exactly; however wether doable or not, thinking about the given language used in the instruction brings about a certain quality in the movement.
