My work explores how we experience and document movement by creating drawings in space which encourage the movement of the viewer.

My drawings in space are formed of notation lifted off the flat page. Although appearing instructional the work subverts the idea of notation by removing its practical purpose. It asks the viewer to question the reliability of the information presented, whilst highlighting the limits of documentation to communicate movement. The viewer is led around the space by the notation; unwittingly becoming the performer as the presence of written instructions or obstacles encourages a physical response. This work came from a wish to bring my two main interests of art and dance together and build upon the research I carried out for my dissertation, which explored the impact of live dance performance in museum spaces. Through this year I have developed confidence in my work and hope to continue building on my practice. I am hoping to continue my studies with a master’s degree in the near future.
