This Time With FEELing

After my recent residency with Unilever, I'm now doing a residency with Space Studios at The White Building in Hackney Wick, London. 

"The This Time With FEELing residency takes a critical approach to this boundary raiding and questions the commercial drive towards the naturalizing and subsumption of technologies that enable the trading in and simulating of algorithmic emotional capital."

Ibraaz

I did this project up now on Ibraaz.org. Cola Revlon Mouthwash (2015) investigates the genealogies and intersections with commercial image making hoping to think about how the strategies used to allow images to migrate across territories affect the ways I perform and mediate myself.

Post Rave Sweat Fatigue Workout

I'm leading an exercise class next Wednesday 7-8pm at ICA, London, as part of Wright/Vandame's Fig 2 installation.

It's gonna be a sloppy aerobic dance session sound-tracked by trance music (probably moving into some happy hardcore). It's gonna be a fun hour starting with a dynamic stretch warm up, leading to a mix of very loose aerobic exercise and dance, taking cue from early morning rave workout sessions. The arrangement will be flowing and baggy, focusing on continual motion and pleasure rather than replication forms and shapes. Breaks and hydration are encouraged.

Book here, it's free, pretty much.





Tower Hamlets Cemetery Park

Hey. So I was commissioned by Annin Arts to work on a bench for permanent installation in Tower Hamlets Cemetery Park near Mile End in East London. I'm excited about working on something that the community there can use, and because it's not so far from my studio. 

If you happen to go to this *incredible* park take a picture on the bench :)
