The universal source of communication is through frequency, not language.

When you remove the language and a learnt pattern of communication you

are left with a range of frequencies. Frequencies are constantly being emitted

through our brainwaves, our cellular structure, and our environment, they are

interacting and restructuring, creating constant oscillation and movement with

all living things.

Through the loss of my own voice, I began to experience Synaesthesia.

Synaesthesia is a condition in which someone experiences things through

their senses in an unusual way, for example, colour as sound, music as

colour, or numbers as a position in space. I became aware that nonverbal and

inaudible communication is taking place in the space arund us and within us.

My process is based on my experience of a sensual, embodied

communication within the physical environment through cellular and

molecular movement, vibration and sound.

In my practice, I create an experience of that transfer through audible and

inaudible information to the viewer bringing into focus the presence of oneself

has an effect on their surroundings. To create my work I use various software

and hardware applications to explore the deconstruction and transference of

sound frequencies.

My practice is informed by scientific evidence and research within the fields

of acoustic physics, nanotechnology, and sonocytology. This includes

scientific research by Dr. Paul Thomas, Hans Jenny, John Stuart Reid, Ernst

Chladni, and the work of Anne Niemetz and Andrew Pelling.
