My multidisciplinary practice addresses communication through voice, language and the interplay between hearing/listening, seeing/reading. Using field recording, digital imaging and the spoken/written word I explore an expanded approach to language within and across species through a framework of everyday experience. The artworks are social in nature and frequently involve collaboration and participation with other artists and with audiences. They take several forms including texts/scores, soundworks, installations, external public artworks, radio, live performance, readings and artists’ books.

Brought up in London UK I studied during the 80s at Wimbledon School of Art and East London University, and arrived in Melbourne Australia as visiting artist through Gertrude Contemporary in the 1990s. My work has been exhibited/performed in the UK, Australia, Hong Kong, Taiwan, China, Thailand, New Zealand, Ireland, Spain, Germany, Lithuania, Austria, Canada, USA, Mexico, Brazil. I teach at Swinburne University, Melbourne (MA Writing) and hold a practice-led PhD (Fine Art) through RMIT University, Melbourne.

Arts, Ecology, Globalization and the Interpretation of Science (AEGIS) is an interdisciplinary research network focusing on how practices of art and cultural critique respond to global ecologies. With a strong grounding in urban human ecologies research and with an emphasis on social processes of globalisation, AEGIS focuses on projects that prioritise the role of art in interpretations of natural history, science and technology.

    Associate member of CAST Research Group RMIT University Melbourne
The Centre for Art, Society and Transformation (CAST) researches how art transforms human communities within an age of rapid urbanisation and globalisation. CAST builds on practice-led research in art and public space, using practical, curatorial and theoretical methodologies. Its researchers examine art’s capacity for social engagement and power to foster local, regional and international creative partnerships and networks.
