This is my first official AIR and I am really looking forward to it. The premise behind this Roundhouse Art & Community Centre program is to general experiences for those who use the space. This leaves the format and plans pretty wide open and it’s morphed a few times even before we knew the summer Pop Up dates.

My personal goal as an artist is to use the AIR as a form of recording activities, time, people, and essentially the place-ness of the Roundhouse. I like to think of the Roundhouse as I think of the ocean or wildlife: it is a living space that breathes and has flow and energy and a story to tell. Whether that story is about recording, building, engaging, documenting, interacting or simply being present and in the moment, I see it as a way to be creative and make a record of a happening, like a diary on behalf of the building or a record of experience for the people who participate with me in this.
