Ocean Dance v3
"...I attach bands of white paper paper to my head, wrists and ankles and dance in ultraviolet light. The paper traces motion that is captured on camera, of the complex journey I imagine, of the Southern Ocean currents spiralling clockwise by complex forces to become the anticlockwise currents in the Arctic regions. I send the recording to animator and musician Paul Fletcher. He multiplies, layers, colours, varies and syncopates the tempo of my dance to create complex visual harmonies. To me the finished piece reflects our combined responses to scientists explaining how the Southern Ocean drives global currents."

"...when we wander... this music came about very directly... I looked at the images and played what I saw. quite soon there was a sense that was both nomadic and aquatic. so....I filled the sink with water and got to work with some saucepan lids and wine glasses..."

"...We must travel and think in free-ranging patterns... meaning being made in the meandering paths between the words, not the isolated words themselves."
