I explore the terrain of the body and the Earth by making sculptures, installations, collages and photographs that connect people to their senses, the elements, and the natural world. My interest in bodily experience and sensory perception led to making sculptures that integrate the sense of touch into their creation and exhibition; my book about this work, The Sensing Body in the Visual Arts, will be published this year by Bloomsbury. I project video onto and into my sculptures, transforming and animating the sculptures and giving body to the moving images; in a current sculpture-in-progress the projection screen is the viewer’s body. I’m collaborating with dancer/choreographer Paul Matteson to integrate my sculptures, my materials and his movement. I also work with water, developing an international art project on springs and groundwater—Water Serpent—and serving as dramaturg for a devised theater production on water—Moving Water.
