I have made about 220 live performances over the past 20 plus years. Performance for me is not a theatrical experience. It is akin instead to a shamanic process of image making except one uses the body as a tool instead of a brush or camera. Performances tend to be durational and evolve throughout time incorporating painting, writing, slow motion movements, balance motions, music, spoken word or sound making, etc… I have given performances throughout the World and the list of venues and countries is too numerous and diverse to form any tangible reflection of my activities. Finally, the images are all that remain in photographic documentation and these serve as triggers for an unreliable memory to ponder.
