Lives in Syracuse
Attended event in Bexhill on Sea

Recently, I've been making work that seeks to connect daily experiences to more abstract forces, such as economics, history and politics. I work in forms such as video, performance, writing and alternative organisations. I am interested in more temporal forms of art and ways of working outside of institutional frameworks.

The image to the right is taken from a performance for which I worked as an Administrative Assistant at Syracuse University for three months. All wages earned from this job were channelled into The Joanna Spitzner Foundation to eventually be issued as grants to artists. During this time, I continued my position as lecturer in Time Arts also at Syracuse University.
