Rooted in the intimate relationship between the ventriloquial figure and the ventriloquist, my practice asks questions about symbiosis, autonomy and sentience. Am I Oscar without her hand in my back? Am I Oscar with someone else's hand in my back? To what extent am I defined by "my" voice, shaped by the spoken word? Considering these questions, I am currently exploring ways of using text, images and video to support a ventriloquial presence online.

For several years I have been working in collaboration with Ciara Finnegan and, together, we frequently collaborate with her children.
