my body is my most immediate tool

2015



"each body performs a duet with space" Susan Leigh Foster



A collection of video sketches documenting explorations / performances that probe at the relationship between geography and the body. Running, walking and climbing using my body as my most immediate tool, I interact with the landscapes surrounding Arbroath on the east coast of Scotland to investigate how cultural and social understandings of landscape and the body impact how we view, imagine, interact and behave in landscapes.



Born out of a need to think through doing, the work brings human geographical and embodied feminist theory into dialogue with video art practice to see how they can coalesce in conversation about place, space, and landscape.
