2020 November: Frame Switching

Intrusions. Video, 22 min. 2020. (Second attempt at distributing myself across different characters within the same work (this time in two languages), but not as interesting as a result). I began the academic year with a fighting spirit; I had a belief in my project and felt committed to it every day — learning, making, … Continue reading 2020 November: Frame Switching

2020 October: Experimental Philosophy and ‘Me’

Screenshot of my research timeline.   Focus The second year of my PhD has officially begun — this makes me excited but also determined to use my time well. Accordingly, focus was the topic of a latest discussion between myself and M. Rankovic (my unofficial 'third supervisor'), especially the idea that focus need not necessarily mean … Continue reading 2020 October: Experimental Philosophy and ‘Me’

2018 April: Venting at The Tramshed

A script for the promotion video for my upcoming Venting performance Of all my bureaucratic dreams// it is the keyboard, tapping like rain under my fingers, which affords me most promise. The keyboard can speak in borrowed tongues// And with it, I will play somebody’s mouth// like a pianist. See me do this at The … Continue reading 2018 April: Venting at The Tramshed

2017 October: Being Daring by Accident

Practice Event 2017 (MA interim group exhibition): Ghost Writing   “Here K moonlights as a novelist. In her novel she is tethering out of the text a being; some sort of agent. Think of the novel then as a sort of textual artificial intelligence incubator, where she is cooking up a person. As with any … Continue reading 2017 October: Being Daring by Accident

2017 August: Resisting the Dissipation of Energy

Anomaline I am at a comforting impasse with Meredith (novel). Something like the top of a hyperbole, where, after following a tangent for some time now with the book (basically just writing out images I found titillating without quite reasoning their trajectory), certain attractors inherent in what is already committed to the journey so far, … Continue reading 2017 August: Resisting the Dissipation of Energy

2017 February: Shooting Art to Artillery

In November I began collaborating with a fellow student, who is also my boyfriend, on a short film he applied for through Central Saint Martins. After some brainstorming, we put together a film pitch and presented it to a panel representing CSM, NOWNESS, and Louis Vuitton Moët Hennessy. Remarkably, we got the funding to make … Continue reading 2017 February: Shooting Art to Artillery

2016 November: A Performance Lecture and a Comedy Short

This month was by all appearances successful, though somehow rather frustrating. My main project is a novel about a line, and other older projects run alongside it as tangents.   Rosa and Lawrence, Lecture Performance at Nottingham Contemporary Rosa and Lawrence, the play that scripts for artificial intelligence, is perhaps the work with which I … Continue reading 2016 November: A Performance Lecture and a Comedy Short

2016 July: Research Matter(s) // Birmingham City University

It seemed appropriate, being thrown into a new season, a new employment status and a new home, to read Mason Currey’s book Daily Rituals: How Artists Work. I have always been fascinated by regimens, and understanding my habits and working predilections seems to me to be my only lever in governing my artistic practice. Since … Continue reading 2016 July: Research Matter(s) // Birmingham City University

2016 May: A Show about Scripting

I tried the “ventriloquism” or “keyboard-puppeteering” idea - I am still not sure what to call it and so the provisional name is Venting. This was a surprisingly exhausting experiment, as it involved four hours of spontaneously coming up with stories quickly enough for my reading partner to read aloud the text I was typing … Continue reading 2016 May: A Show about Scripting
