In the tradition of the surrealists, this work had its roots in a dream. I dreamt I was inside a terrarium and I was being painted green. This inspired me to create a body of work centred around becoming a plant.
To further realise this dream I made a series of objects, performances and an installation in a series of works with the main title I am a Plant.
Making objects leading up to a performance helps me to clarify and express my thoughts. By using my hands, I can make tangible ideas that would otherwise remain abstract. This includes dreams.
