To Eat Glass explores biomorphic and geometric abstract shapes found in early Modernist and Dada paintings.  Focusing on the kinaesthetic qualities of still shapes found in abstract paintings, the work evolved to be a painting that deconstructs and reconstructs to be something a body can crawl inside, and become animate.  Resulting in a ‘dance of a painting’ work, that includes live performance, video works and sculptural artefacts.

Performative outcomes from Glass have had developmental showings at the Heide Museum of Modern Art and at Monash University MFA graduate exhibition.
