SUMMARY: I'm interested in the impact of the digital upon the physical - in terms of the body, objects, sense of self, sense of place, sense of past, present & future. I explore this through photography, music, curatorial, selling and participatory projects and performance - online and offline. See me talking about my work in a 10 min video portrait made by Oona Friedrichs and Julian Beyer earlier this year HERE.

TWO MAJOR ONGOING PROJECTS:

1. #SERGINA - online/offline musical drag performances about the negotiation between the physical & digital body, explored via music, video and live performances. #Sergina performs both alone and with other bodies, often simultaneously in different places, linked up over Google Hangout and live broadcast via YouTube. Themes: #Identity #Drag #Simultaneity #OnlineOffline #PhysicalDigital

LIVESTREAM footage as it was shown via YouTube from #Sergina's Stimulatingly Sexy Simultaneous Simulation of Herself in at Silver Future in Berlin; Kulturni Centrar GRAD, Belgrade and The Marlborough Theatre in Brighton. HD footage from each venue will follow. Check out snaps of the performance also on Sergina's Instagram.

Click HERE for further info about this and other performances developed for my digital residency with Fabrica Gallery in association with Brighton Digital Festival. And find #Sergina's music HERE.

See #Sergina's recent lecture 'An Orgy of Algorithms and Other Desires and Distractions' at the Academy of Fine Arts, Munich HERE.

2. THE GEORGE RICHMOND PORTRAIT PROJECT

Tracing portraits by my great great great grandfather George Richmond RA (1809-1896) to private homes - and to the same families that commissioned them - in order to photograph both the portraits and their current owners in situ. I am also conducting audio interviews with the people I am meeting, both about the portraits and the people in them. Themes: #Inheritance #Portraiture #VictorianEra #Family #BritishSociety
