"Inspired by exploring minimal, contemporary gallery installations, I was curious to see how human shapes could permeate flat surfaces in the simplest ways possible. The resulting shapes created the emergence of something from nothing – a philosophical idea in science that fascinates me. Hence the title formation.

The work was created in response to The POOL COLLECTIVE group show called The Naked and the Nude. Piecing together the sequences of shapes then became a dual exercise in choreography and editing, drawing on my background as a Director and a trained classical dancer, and was done with close collaboration with John Benton who would interpret the vision and respond to it musically."
