FLUX comprises a set of still images together with multichannel sound. Images are of performance events set in outside locations. Performers and audience are subject to a set of guidelines which provide the structure for FLUX installations and events. The project is divided into sections (one for each performance) which vary in treatment depending upon the character of each individual. The project is based upon our societal notions of disability & identity and has been developed in collaboration with members of Random Line Performance Company.

BODY - SPACE - IMAGE (The Body Project).

A long term project started in 1997 and running until 2005 looking at various aspects of our relation to image and body shape. Full body casts were made, together with video, sound, dance and physical performance to create a series of events held between 1998 and 2005. Although not a current project some of the themes and methodology used have been progressed through other material - providing strands of continuity based upon a continued interest.
