Bubble gum tongue

I'm glad you could make it It's nice to see you here I really wanted you to see my work It's good to see you I really wanted you to be here You smell nice like a summer breeze clean like you've just showered but spicy and mysterious You make me look good I want to get close with you We're almost touching did you know When you hold your glass you are holding me Your soft fingers on my forehead Can you feel my breath on your neck One time i lay on the grass in a cow paddock I lay very still and all the cows came over to me and put their noses close to my neck and face and they were breathing heavy warm breaths You know the earth's not tricking you It's essential stuff Stuff this take me outside and dig a hole Let's dig throwing dirt like crazy It's getting all over your shirt but you don't care You're reckless like that I want to Let me climb up to wiggle through you slipping embryonic massaging organs It's rosy tinted here behind your skin One day when you and I are one our bodies merging my knees making buns with your knees our fingers fusing to form endless loops through arms No more pointing Your blood becomes my saliva I can taste your plans and my hair plants roots onto your face our tongues make bubble gum writhing together one tongue.

Prospecting; Helsinki version, 2011. A 15 minute performance at 1am.

Digging and digging through concrete. Dropping spoons, picking them up, dropping spoons, picking them up.

A situational performance. With support from Ptarmigan and Arteles Creative Centre

An invited audience were looking through the glass wall of a cosy cafe while passers by created an impromtu outdoor audience.

Spitdrool, 2010

Let’s Roar Loudly; Feminism & Art Symposium, We Are Optimistic, 
Dunedin, New Zealand

Bias binding is looped around the audience. The screen image shows one woman spitting / drooling onto another woman who does not react or resist. As one performer removes stars from her face, the other sticks stars onto her face.

We Are Moving Forward Positively. Participatory project in collaboration with Matt Gillies.

Visitors were invited to transform survey answers into poems or character collages. We then sent the results back to the person who had been surveyed.

We set up our office first in an art gallery, then in a railway station container beside a busy train station.

Stage two: Visitors making cut 'n' paste poems and character collages.

1. The artists phone call centre operators to survey them while they are at work. They ask questions 
about the operator's relationship to their working environment.
2.  An office environment is installed in a shipping container near Wellington Railway station. Visitors to the shipping container are invited to choose a completed survey and make a cut 'n paste poem or character collage relating to the surveyee's answers.
3. Cut 'n' paste poems and character collages are posted to the call centre operators who were surveyed in step 1.
