I love the idea of making something new in the world that refers mostly to itself. Music is the phenomena that I’m most interested in, so I like to explore rhythms through repetition of shape and what can happen between those shapes. I try to balance form space and light through a haptic and intuitive process. A composer would arrange rhythm melody and harmony into compositions. I am trying to choreograph form, space and light into a composition that aims to approach a visual equivalency to music. I don’t think of beauty as an anachronistic value. In the endeavour to surprise myself by utilising chance techniques and improvisation, I am looking for a kind of beauty that infers a musical experience.
