she i her (2012-2015)

SIH_3waveforms#3

she i her is an open work of image, text, video, sound and light. Language(s) intersects with somatic rhythms, experimental writing with structure, and knowing with uncertainty with overlapping subjectivities. Texts by Woolf, Stein and Cixous, and walking through Parisian streets as a dérive were my influences and process. I privileged direct experience before language. Woolf and Stein’s texts opened up the imperceptible and chance, stream of consciousness and language/word play. Cixous proposed writing as a form of journeying through the world using one’s body as transport. The project is an iterative exploration of processes, materials, visualization and analysis of sound.
