ARTIST STATEMENT

The Shinkansen is a high-speed luxury train that connects most of urbanized Japan. To travel on the Shinkansen is common, sumptuous and a unique experience in travel and culture 

My practice uses video and performance to explore notions of identity and autonomy. Ideally, “Shinkansen” video will be played at the Footscray Train Station, bringing a type of ghostly overlay, and far-away travel to our home of Footscray - both demonstrating what is similar and what is different.
