The PringaDa works explore the question: 'What is within the moment of hesitation?’
Ephemeral and often formless, the works are prompted by the chance encounters of everyday life. Mostly they fall into one of two categories: ‘matterings’ (which usually record a chance encounter) and ‘soundings’ (an invitation to others to do something, such as the Fluxus-inspired event scores). The works are strongly influenced by and draw on the attitude, values, methods and characteristics of Fluxus. John Cage and Zen Buddhism are also key influences.
These works come from an experimental practice that proposes new understandings about art. The works suggest how the resonance felt when engaging with other forms of art can be relocated to the everyday lived experience of anyone, anytime — beyond the art object, beyond the gallery, beyond delineation, beyond intent. They are not static forms of art but rather they are indicators of potential — they invite people to ‘tune in’ to their own life and experience their own ‘art moments’ in everyday life. They say, ‘This is what is here for you. This too is art’.
