Research interests primarily encompass the ontology of performance art and its boundaries as a medium. The historically overlapped relationship that performance shares with materials outside itself such as painting, photography, video and writing is the space being considered. Greatly concerned with the lack of exploration into the expansion of performance’s ontology, the research highlights and comments on the unmistakable material and image based realm that performance has slipped into, as opposed to the live, body centered practice it continues to be portrayed as.
