During 2016 (and beyond!) I will be further exploring my practice as it relates to embodied, practice-based research.

Whilst continuing to investigate frameworks and devices for adjusting our experience of the spaces we move through and inhabit (see projects such as Colony and Where the Sky Widens), I will use the BOM fellowship to focus on how the impact of these can be expressed in ways beyond simply counting participant or audience numbers.

Can we develop a set of quantitative and qualitative metrics that are more meaningful ways of articulating the value of participatory events designed to promote conversation and exchange between small groups of people? Early plans include convening a gathering for practice-based researchers in order to learn how other practitioners work and to provide a space in which people from different backgrounds can share strategies
