Residency project:

To enlarge and continue with this research about giving meaning to empty spaces I want to develop the idea of a multidisciplinary series of sites specifics. The guiding concept is “The breathe”. “How does this city breathe?”As materials and resources I´ll select and combine sounds, images, videos and sketches of the city I´ll be in residence at the time, to be edited and projected over a form designed as a Site specific with fabrics. This intervention could be constructed at a public place in the same city. Could also be a collaborative and open work with other local or foreign artists.

 ResideNce project I would like to stay at a residence which has a dance studio that I can train with my object manipulation practice. I am a juggler, and I am creating an art piece which I juggle the alphabet (letters), producing words. It would be best if I could practice for 3 months time, in which I research the possible dynamics of the alphabet itself. The first month I would spend exploring each letter for a whole day - 26 days where I seek to clearly develop an understanding of the dynamics of each object I will be using. The following month would be looking at the different possibilities within the combination of letters, discovering anagrams and sentences which I could use. The third month would be to find meaning and narrative, sharing this narrative through the dynamic manipulation of each letter individually, creating a larger meaning to the whole story and practice. I intend to create a 40 minute piece, and as a videographer, I intend to use video editing to film and edit my piece together, and help create the story more objectively. 
I am interested in taking residency in a French culture because I am exploring the ways language are used (Both dynamically and literally) . My lifetime goal is to be bilingual and speak both French and English, however, I find it difficult to practice my french language while I am in Vancouver, British Columbia. In order to truly explore the use of language, I feel I should also include using French expressions within my piece, therefore taking residence within a France. The finished piece would be a 40 minute narrative, told by a silent "clown" who manipulates letters in surprising ways, using both English and French..
