statement
my work centers around endurance and confronting myself. i experience these main topics within myself but also invite others for collaboration experiences. the duration of the performances allows a high state of meditative consciousness to be reached by the performer. my work comes from a desire for harmony in a world that’s filled with noise. the performances always have a polarizing nucleus and are either highly energized or totally passive.
