Living Sculptures
Living Sculptures

Living Sculptures was created for the Pure Not Proper show. Each performer had a chair and was instructed to live and exist in a Fleshsuit in and around the world of their chair. They were able to interact with each other but only mildly with the audience, leaving a hint of the 4th wall.

Skins

The Skins series is an investigation of aging and growing, not just in the physical sense but also mentally and emotionally. The Leg Skins are a physically representation of what we shed and leave behind as we "evolve". They also speak to the fragile nature of our human form and how it wrinkles, ripples and dimples with time and use. This series is a direct offshoot of the Fleshsuit series and has the same implications of beauty in that which we have been taught are flaws.

The Skin Suits series runs parallel to that of the Skins/ Leg Skins series. The Skin Suits are discarded, lonely ghosts of our former selves that we have been abandoned. But perhaps there is still some humor in these melancholy figures...
