I am particularly interested in what I describe as the cognitive process of collecting art and how individuals within institutions shape what, whom and which objects enter the museum's collection.
Other interests lie in the continual shifts in currency of sound art, with specific reference to its relationship with performance and inherently performance art's relationship to sound.

Sound is ubiquitous, unstoppable, immersive, the agency through which spoken language is understood and music is absorbed. Sound works quietly with other senses to scan an environment, to define orientation within a place, to register the feeling that we describe as atmosphere.

Future research and curatorial projects will focus on contemporary African performance and moving image.
