What does it feel like to be the top of the food chain? Consent invites audiences to consider the value of a life and our capacity for empathy when confronted with our own power.
Is this for me? An experiment in human compassion. Involves artist nudity.

What are the rights of non-human life forms? Listen closely to the history and politics embedded in the plants of St George Square in this multi-sensory walk.
Is this for me? A chance to champion botanical rights. Involves touching organic materials.

An intimate meditation exploring the algorithm of time lived, and time yet to come. Sink into a hypnotic ritual where old regrets are dismissed and new desires are illuminated. Can we really live every day like it’s our last? And even if we can, what does it mean to do so?
Is this for me? For those wanting to refocus their perspective.
