I make active observations of water and other ‘fluid’ phenomena, making interactions with them as unfolding entities — as I consider them verbs, not nouns. Not still-life, but un-still life. Through poetic fieldwork I develop, for example, a water mindset and enter into a kind of material dialogue using an emergent language; a language more than human.
'Matter itself is always already open to, or rather entangled with, the "Other." The intra-actively emergent "parts" of phenomena are co-constituted. Not only subjects but also objects are permeated through and through with their entangled kin; the other is not just in one's skin, but in one's bones, in one's belly, in one's heart, in one's nucleus, in one's past and future.'
