My interests of artistic and theoretical research are in sexual identity construction, gender, feminism, anti-feminist backlash, homophobia, and media representations of sexuality, queer identity, and the female body as public property. I am also interested in copyright/copyleft and their implications on media production and remix/mashup culture.

Over the course of my career, my art practice has drawn from a school of disciplines that have shaped my current practice and production process. Durational and in-situ performance, spoken word, cabaret and art-house performance, remix, sampling, single channel and multi-channel video, costuming, fibre-arts, craft, sculpture, installation, theatre, graphic design, animation,collage, interactivity, social media engagement, digital design, photography, non-linear narrative and effect motion graphics have all become overlapping production components and processes to my art practice. These disciplines critically and creatively influence my research, critical analysis, writing and teaching.
