Australian artist, composer, and writer

 

I’m currently obsessed with ethics. How do we build ethical systems in real time and what do we do when our personal frameworks clash with other people’s? I find the inevitable fissures fascinating and terrifying. I am especially interested in how we act within public plazas, or ‘agoras:’ civically-resonant spaces such as town squares, libraries, and parks. My work (video, sculpture, text) draws on my background as a public broadcaster – essentially, being a voice for hire - and my concurrent history of helping build non-hierarchical cohorts using strategies learned from sound art. Lately, however, I’ve realized that my utopian desires are more skeptical than assured; people are bewildering.
