Abstract:

My sense of what it means to be a human in the universe at this time, an artist working with materials is most closely aligned with theories from Post-humanism and New Materialism. Borrowing freely and mostly from scholars Karen Barad, Elizabeth Grosz, and Rosi Braidotti, because they were influenced by the work of Deleuze and Guattari, and know so much more about what I did not know I knew as an artist. This paper is an expression of how events, that included many people, materials and machines coalesced to become new art objects with embedded and embodied meanings. Without abandoning the enduring themes of sexuality, the body and colour in my work, I studied the events of making new work in a new material with a new methodology in a new context with new experiences and new knowledge. Difference was made and mattered.
