About the show
Mapping my 30-year standard normal*
An intimate performance exploring landscapes of memory and humanity’s relationship with the earth, Constellations is designed for small audiences of up to 6 people. Through a re-imagining of the performance space in miniature, it investigates themes of nostalgia and memory in relation to the multiple scales of environmental crisis. Numerous timelines intertwine as the piece examines humanity’s power to both destroy and be destroyed, and our capacity to care for a world within which we are totally enmeshed.
*30 years is the standard reference period for calculating climate normals and identifying variations in global temperature (WNO, 2021)
'... absolutely mesmerising and unlike anything else I've ever seen.' (audience member, Constellations)

New article published on ecoartsscotland
After participating in the Becoming Earthly seminar series 2022 in association with The Barn, Banchory, Scotland, I was commissioned along with fellow artist Erika Cann to write a piece for ecoartsscotland. The result is entitled Towards a Geological-artistic practice and emerged from our conversations over several months about if and how Becoming Earthly has changed our practices. You can read the article here.
