− Boxing Glove

Boxing Glove was a performance using a boxing glove as a sound interface that response to movements and contact. I used it as a sound instrument for political spoken word performances. I presented it at the Heiner Goebbels festival during the music and politics discussion session at the Royal Conservatory.

− The Crying Sticks

A sound device made with interactive sticks which respond to the way you handle them, by producing different sound, melodies and rhythms. I used them to perform with the electronic music ensemble Rec-Play and performed with different electronic experimental music bands.

− Rotating Speech

This installation consists of a series of speakers, arranged in a circle. It allowed people to walk around them, or in the circle. Doing so, they get to hear different contradicting political speeches.

− See-Saw

A game of balancing two people, positioned back to back, facing a computer screen. Based on the well known children’ s tool found at any playground, this installation started from (dis)trust and non-visual coordination in adults, exploring the imbalances and instability in human beings. The original combination of seeing images on two monitors while moving on the reversed See- Saw resulted in an intriguing and often disorienting experience. When participants managed to move harmoniously they would see each other’s faces, but if they did not strike a balance, they would be confronted with increasingly disturbing images from the international media, blurred speeches and sounds of protest.

Kambisa!ExChange (Zambia)

Kambisa!OnStage is a music and art project for which I took twelve Dutch ICT, film and art students to Zambia to record the work of local Zambians. The exchange resulted in a theatre play, 2 short films, a documentary, about 40 songs being recorded and performed, and laid the foundation for an follow-up online exchange project during which Dutch and Zambian school kids drew and discussed their dream houses. Doing so, Kambisa! lets participants experience each other’s artistic productions and find a common learning point from each other.

Domiciliary phobia 

In this project I am exploring the history of European sexism exported by missionaries to Africa and the position of African women in society by illustrating with utensils and fabric as material in which to explain these . The concept and ideas are drawn from various sources such as historical publications in the field of African studies to women testimonials in southern part of Africa.  Domiciliary phobia invites the public to explore the origins of sexism as we know it in African society such the Bemba tribal society, also I explore the vast social and economic inequalities that persist today, in relation to women. This project is an installation / sculptures, combining domestic used kitchen tools including textiles and clothing with a personal – social, economic symbolisms or political statement or attachment . This work is a commemoration of  cultural, economical , religious  & social  injustice or political tragedy involving women historically.

– Labyrinth of Noir

Seeks to navigate the influence of art, technology, design and the natural world on people. Concerned with the environment and its safety, the installation tries to investigate human behavior in the information era and proposes innovative models for societal development for instance in its use of light, water and air.  The labyrinth of Noir is the re-imagined  Giant sun, clean sky, clean sea and a clean fresh atmosphere in space. It is not about enjoying natural elements but about taking responsibility. Giving the public an insight into the future of earth, the labyrinth of Noir installation invites the audience into multi-sensory experience of light sound and smell.
