I am currently a PhD candidate with University of Glasgow. My work is concerned with the use of objects and performance and particularly domestic or ordinary things. I am currently investigating the uncanny unhomely through performance research in my own home. For details of my research blog go to: http://gdnotesandresearch.blogspot.co.uk/
The 90 minute performance work developed from current research concerns and endeavoured to invstigate how repetition as a dramaturgic strategy in performance creates a sense of the uncanny. In addition, the work asked if the re-iteration of a series of fragmented actions, re-performed in differeing states of (un) dress altered the reading of these actions.
