Creatively I am developing multi-sensory and interactive pieces that challenge the neuro normative paradigm, and that aim to, and cant help but, defy that convention. This approach is informed by a neurodiversity framework, that invites reflection on multiple sensory experiences of the world and our ways of interacting with it and with each other.
The perspective that I work from creatively is about celebrating curiosity and delight in difference and diversity, rather than the more challenging themes of separation and segregation which I am currently exploring in my more academic research work. I am also exploring themes of trauma and notions of community and healing within somatic parameters. Informed by a neuroscientific appreciation of body and brain i’m interested in interrogating current social, emotional and political conundrums of human relationality.
