i play w/ words in a variety ov sometimes conventionally & sometimes un- ... before owning our labour we owned our voice - yet this is too often denied, language our first battlefield.  my work across visual poetry / theatre / spoken & printed word / sound(mappings) / live art / installation & film challenges ownerships ov language/s

the only acceptable portrait of me
