The phrase Metabolic Synaesthete describes the way in which we connect with our world absorbing and processing it to produce ourselves and co-create our realities. I am an artist who works across artforms to inquire into the nature of our relationship with the world and, where appropriate, to reinvent this relationship. I use drawing and painting, sculpture, installation and new media. My practice includes intimate studio inquiry, arts research and the development of participatory art programs.
I am currently a PhD Candidate through the Sculpture Workshop at the Australian National University. My research centres on developing an understanding of the body that accounts for the overlapping of embodied conscious with its environment. This notion is called aesthetic subjectivity and I examine it through a creative practice led inquiry of my domestic environment.
Aesthetic Subjectivity: an embodied consciousness embedded in and emergent from its environment.
