Statement

I am a university researcher working with knowing through design and aesthetic inquiry in text, image and performance.

Important guiding questions for me are about knowledge, mediation and form: How are knowledge and form intertwined? What is the performative agency of a medium?

Or a mode of expression?

I am dedicated to exploring performative, relational and processual ontologies of knowing. These inquiries transcend my various practices of creating: text (scholarly articles, poetry, journalism, communication materials); visuals (painting, collage, photography, video and multimedia); performance (site-specifics, installations and lecture performances); and space (exhibitions, interiors).

This site – hybridspaces.me – is an expository for creative, exploratory and aesthetic work.

A list of concepts, which I find relevant in describing and exploring my work:

  • polyphony, dialogue and multiplicity
  • mediation, translation and association
  • tension, borderlands and friction
  • experience, sense, emotion
  • learning, knowing and understanding
  • materiality
  • spatiality
