'Art is something that happens; a process, not a quality, and all sorts of things can make it happen.
“…what makes a work of art ‘good’ for you is not something that is already ‘inside’ it, but something that happens inside you.” Brian Eno’s Diary, A Year With Swollen Appendices, 1996.
Although I have ‘nothing’ to show, I will attempt to present over twenty years of work in forty minutes, through the documentation, stories and accounts of the experiences I have affected.
Central to my creative practice is an ability to present a sense of ‘touch’ in a global network, where the role of the viewer becomes creator. The networked video installations I have developed connect audiences around the world; whose engagement within them makes the work and their shared experiences of them creates the Art.
Stop thinking about art works as objects, and start thinking about them as triggers for experiences
