Insularity – The state or condition of being an island
My current practice consists of the visual sound of isolation. Drawing on my recent experience of isolating myself in foreign countries for an extended period of time, being constantly surrounded by sound but also being very separated from it and also my unusual relationships at home. Within my overall practice I strive to create emotional responses within my audience, however now my current practice stems from me allowing other people to interact with my experience and emotions. My overall vision within my current practice is to use performance to try and create a sense of belonging, through the use of collaboration within the medium of performance, which allows me to show the nature of interaction. Therefore isolation becomes a shared experience through communities that are created in small time periods and have lasting effects.
