“We order sensations in space through the dimension of time. Experience is a fluid state of
being where moments cannot be frozen; instead they melt into each other in a private reality of
duration." *

I work with the documentation of impermanence - using my body as a recording instrument for
the re-translation of experiential and transient data – sound/touch/movement/effort – into
drawn form. Drawing In Time III captures a performance drawing which reflects the sound of
traffic under Waterloo Bridge Road, but the qualities and capabilities of video, sound and the
specificities of projection space allow the work to be reshaped as a new event, playing with
control, choice and perception.
