            I have been selected to participate in the University of the Arts PhD studio residency at the British School of Rome (The BSR). The Mead Rome PhD Studio Residency joins the existing programme of Mead Scholarships and Fellowships which support UAL students in the pursuit of excellence through their creative practice and research. The residency provides an opportunity to further develop my Ph.D. investigation of a ‘phenomenological identity', a proposed liminal place between context and body, in a working studio, invigorated by the rich diversity that Rome offers and the support of the community at the BSR. You can find out more about the Britsh School in Rome here: BSR.

MK Calling 2017: This Exhibition showcases new and exciting work by over 70 emerging and established artists at the Milton Keynes Gallery


            This was a unique opportunity to work in the Milton Keynes Gallery that is at the start of expansion and renovation of its main exhibition building. I chose to utilize the invitation to work on site and respond to the theme of construction/deconstruction that looks at the architecture and the building in its current state. The slippery, ‘in-between’ things, is something that I focus on in my practice base research; interactions that happen in the middle of here and there. A form of otherness that is vulnerable because of the unknown, ambiguity or uncertainty that is part of ‘becoming’. Threshold is about considering the relation of the body to the precariousness of change; the phenomenal and metaphorical transformation when moving from one place to another. The site is intrinsic to our negotiation through the distance between things, the boundaries of the body, self and what is unknown, intermingling contemporaneously.


Collisions Festival 2016: A Materialist Encounter

The Royal Central School of Speech & Drama is at the forefront of Practice as Research in performance. COLLISIONS is the annual event that showcases our thriving PaR community, specifically allowing research degrees students and creative fellows to collectively engage with what it means to be researching through practice and to share this with a wider academic audience.

“Collisions” refers to the collision of disciplines, methodologies, ideas and practices. It provides a platform for experimentation and exploration, with the practice shared likely to be processual, interrogative and exploratory, rather than highly polished and produced.

Through showing the work in this context – in momentarily opening up both creative and research processes to public scrutiny – we hope COLLISIONS acts as a fertile environment in which to exchange ideas. Through exhibiting our practice, we want to provoke and incite dialogue, so please check out our programme of events, come along and get involved.

COLLISIONS 2016 takes place from Tuesday 27th to Thursday 29th September. All events are free, however advance booking is recommended and can be done directly on each artists' event page,
