I’m particularly interested in the idea of slash blank/_____

i.e. I like to play in different mediums. I like to evolve your (and my own) understanding of what disciplines and skill-sets someone can possess, coalesce, evolve. I’ve always felt I’ll never be the best at any one thing, but I may be a combination that we’ve never seen before.

I feel a bit like my life is an iterative art project. This philosophy and approach leave space for me to experiment & grow. It allows me to develop creatively, to collaborate broadly & stay inspired. It’s also really fucking fun. If you want to know more about my philosophies might I recommend exploring my manifesto?

My purpose can perhaps most concisely be boiled down to this tweet.
