Currently researching for a practice-related PhD. The subject is the effect of technology on concepts of natural and synthetic space in relation to landscape.
My practice and thesis begin from an understanding of social structures as spatial and as performed.
My thesis examines work by Antonin Artaud, Henry Darger, Marcel Duchamp, and Pablo Picasso, with the intention of subjecting specific works by these artists to critical tests employing the idea proposed by Antonin Artaud's subjectile, that is a paradoxical fusion of both subject and object.
I create videos, sculptures and drawings that explore physical and mythical entanglements between humans and animals.
Kaidie runs to look for a/the Meaning of Life - but what a quixotic quest. For starters, 'run' refers not only to the sport and locomotion, but figures of speech including 'letting your imagination run wild' and 'being on the run'.
In this practice-related study I use a range of play theory to examine the creative processes behind the work of Eduardo Paolozzi, Philip Guston and Tony Oursler.
I work with video, photography and installation and am interested in the interface between the external world and the internal world of the imagination.

Can photographs of pain mediate the space between patient and clinician to facilitate improved communication and rapport in facial pain consultations? Can an exploration of facial pain inform our understanding of portraiture and vice versa?
My research investigates concepts of imagination in Hannah Höch's independent and collaborative work. I ask where Höch locates her understanding of imagination within different conceptual frameworks, drawing on concepts of imagination from Bergson, Freud, Breton, Benjamin and Bachelard.
The research themes for the Graduate Research Weeks involve basic notions that continually inform the activity of art-making, and hence are key to the development of artistic research. The research themes this academic year were: Drawing, Colour, Big and Body.
