My experimental criticism projects use the tools of criticism in creative, responsive ways to most fully capture an artistic experience, to explore new ways the written word can approach talking about art, and to consider what revels itself to us when we look at performance and criticism from an unexpected angle.
This work moves away from my traditional practice in reviewing performance, and instead looks at the way we can engage with digital technology, contemporary approaches to digesting news, and altering the way art and criticism interact and intersect. It looks for the possibilities of criticism itself as an artistic act, and positions itself firmly not as ‘the final word’ on a piece of art, but rather as just a moment in an ongoing conversation between artist and audience. Using both digital and artistic tools, this work lends itself to the idea that your engagement with a piece of art starts the first time you ever hear about it, and ends the last time you ever think about it: thus both the piece of art itself as well as any response written to that art are but brief moments in a continuum where art can shape our lives.
Simple Art Transfer Protocol and Jane Has A Newsletter are available for remount; I would love to discuss new commissions or collaborative projects.
