Still Life, 2005
I lie on the floor of a hotel room, with my head inside a leather suitcase. Out of the suitcase spill medicine bottles, white gloves and ballet shoes. I lie perfectly still for thirty minutes.

Messenger, 2006
I direct my breath at a mirror hanging by a ribbon from the ceiling. As I breathe, the mirror spins, and the light reflecting off it orbits the room. Duration twenty minutes. Photographs by
Oliver Smith.

Laughing Piece, 2006
I lie on the floor with a cluster of mirrors on top of me. These are moved by my breath, as is the light they reflect onto the adjacent wall. I begin to laugh, and the pools of light shudder on the wall. The laughter builds to hysteria, then subsides. Duration twenty minutes.

Fallout, 2007/8
I sit in a darkened room, holding a metal arm support with a torch strapped to it. This light explores the room as the metal arm swings on its internal pivot. The performance ends when I stand up, and hundreds of black marbles fall from my dress. Duration fifteen minutes.
