Things have been quiet on the site - but it certainly hasn’t been quiet off site. Over February and March, I hosted 2 of the 3 Taiwanese dance artists at my home.

What else is possible? What is my worth as an artist?

At the “Independence” Within an “Industry" session at #ATF2015, I raised the point of currency. I wondered about how we could redefine currency in the way we work.

That since Melbourne in 2010, my practice has formulated and changed, and is something that never quite existed in Singapore for me… Continue reading SingaporeBrisbane Exchange
