    I would like to ask you about ‘I am desert’ (2013). Was it a performance piece or just exploring the space’ and documenting? It is a beautiful photograph. I am in my 4th year of studying Fine Art at Rhodes University and looking at the body and the land (the space and relationship between the two) I have created this discourse through performative documented work. I am also interested in Land art and have explored in my previous years. I enjoyed how you documented ‘Walking in Circles’ (2012) one can really get the meditative ‘feel’ of the artwork

    I am emailing just to ask whether you have any advice, comments or merely discussion around this topic..

    Warm Regards

      Hi Sarah,
      thank you for your comment. I am glad you have found my work and enjoy it.
      I work in a very intuitive and varied way in exploring the landscape and my connection to it. In the ‘I am desert’ series I have only done photographic documentation. Even though it would probably be described as performance, I have difficulty with that term, because it is not done with the intention to perform to an audience. Unless the desert and its inhabitants are seen as the audience. I’d rather call it a mediative exploration process, trying to become one with the landscape through movement, stillness and touch.

      Your work sounds to be in a very similar direction. And I would be curious to see what you are doing. You can find much more different information on my land art and explorations under my blog, if you are interested. You are also welcome to email me if you have questions or would like to discuss etc. When I studied I always longed for finding other artists who can help, advice or inspire me on my journey, so I would gladly help if I can. You can find my email under contacts.
      All the best for your studies, and most of all, have fun with them! 🙂
