I think it is vital for personal and collective growth for humans to be as free as possible. Free to be curious, free to question, free to challenge and interrogate.

The ‘arts’ (if they exist at all by definition) should allow platforms for these freedoms to be explored.

My process attempts to examine restrictions on freedom and consent using a variety of mechanisms.
