    Fifteen (July 2014)

    “This performance is to rid my subconscious of any urgency to be glorified. Renouncing any previous interest in aspirational validation. Giving myself the promised fifteen minutes before it’s handed to me. Presenting a visual representation as what I deem to be my highest commercial value. Based on the conditioned general consensus of the archetypal celebrated woman. Being put on a pedestal and being pushed off, performing equally as the pushed and the pusher.”

    If you receive a round of applause in a forest and no one else is around to hear it, does it still make a sound? (August 2013)

    “This performance is a physical representation of a digital act and in turn a digitally produced emotion. It demonstrates isolation and celebration. Encouraging us to produce a spectacular representation of our projected existence as global expression. Enhanced by the ritual of applause as a universal celebratory tool, the role of the spectator controls how we become estranged from ourselves.”
