Pictured is a still from the 16mm film ‘Against the Tide’, I attempt to swim against a current that is too strong and I am repeatedly washed from the frame.

Also pictured is a still from the 16mm film ‘Tipping Point’.  A china plate spins precariously on a stick and as it falls, the film cuts. The action repeats, the plate spins, falling from the frame repeatedly. 

I use what could be defined as Sisyphean rules and tasks, performing them for the camera or suggesting them within how the work is exhibited. These actions can seem like a romantic response to, or an urge to escape from the space in which they are performed.
