Project:Moments Intercepted

Occupation: MFA Candidate, NSCAD University
Location: Halifax

Why does this project interest me?
I have begun exploring performance art, using handmade props. There is such a long gestation period for each work, building and finishing props in ceramic, before the performance takes place. This is beneficial in some ways, but also becomes a barrier to spontaneous action...sometimes I become inert. These small actions will help me to not over mediate every aspect of the work.

Challenge: *Challenge 3: Reveal something hidden

basic personality and predispositions as best as I can determine

Challenge: *Challenge 1: Turn something green

Greenware Hand

Slip cast porcelain hand with flesh hand insertion. I went on to have tea wearing the greenware* hand in my studio.

*Greenware is the term for clay in an unfired state.
