As an artist I use text to explore how writing may initiate the staged display of a figure to be observed. I often produce restrictions of meticulously described routine to question the process of learning text as an activity which produces a performance. Repeating words which are said or written by an other is a process which asks how the sensation of language can displace a sense of self and change an impression of a figure. The contexts of private and domestic environments feature frequently as a setting, becoming offset by the public delivery to live audience.
