'In my practice I create intimate sensory experiences which call for a surrender of our human senses to the space. In these experiences I aim to create glimpses of sensual awakening, allowing a participant to experience the transcendence of their individual limits towards moving in synchrony with space itself. I feel urgently that at this present time of ecological catastrophe it is more important than ever to come into touch with our senses and feel how they connect us to a wider ecology; ultimately to the shared sentience of space. Experiencing our senses in this way can awaken our sense of compassion for and belonging to the earth that is our home.'
