MA work

I have a book whose cover promises me “A Short History of the World”. It is thin and was written at the turn of the last century. The promise and aspiration of the author appeal to my own tendency toward the absurd and impossible. Such out-moded forms of knowledge inspire revision and retelling. Looking back at the things that have been left out, I want to restructure the order and importance placed on certain aspects of our history, highlighting the abandoned bits. Through performance, print and film I work these stories back into the fabric of the everyday, telling them through the magic of the makeshift and handmade.
