My practice involves the documentation of chaotic or harmonic dispersions and reactions, and the mechanisms involved. I am interested in the pedagogical nature of scientific demonstration used as performance art, and the non-art gesture.
For my postgraduate studies, I wanted to experiment with ways of representing the world of subatomic particles. I am now linking this with CRT televisions – how some of the static on old televisions is background radiation, and the static can be used with toner to visualise Lichtenberg figures. A CRT TV can be made into an oscilloscope and the patterns that appear are called Lissajous patterns. This is how all my works link together, and I plan to resolve this visually.
