Peripheral began in 2015 as a collection of videos of recorded gestures encountered in everyday life, on my phone or a Mini-DV camera, whatever was to hand at the time.


I’m interested in moments that punctuate the experience of ones daily landscape, interjections into our periphery, be it our vision or imagination. A sort of homage to daily happenstances, hence the name of this study.


This project has since led to my current research into dorsal space from the deaf perspective and the philosophy and movement of corporeal mime.
