I use the body and mind itself as a means of doing research.
I know through doing. I analyse through writing.
I supplement my creative practice with written word.
I work intuitively, and
I lean into the fact that no research can be done objectively, and instead acknowledge and accommodates subjectivity, emotionality and my own influence on research.
I am a creative autoethnographer, working with the non-human to learn new ways of being whilst encouraging the human to experience my learnings.
I believe research can be emotional, therapeutic, personal, social WHILST also being rigorous, theoretical and analytical.
I find value and meaning in a wider lens of the world.
I care about accessibility, diversity and inclusion, and artistic research is a way to begin and deepen wider conversations.
I consider research to be a political, socially-just and socially-conscious act.
My research is around deepening human capacity to empathise with the non-human.
