The performance video Current Status explores language as a stream of consciousness that is fed and re-fed through communication. The ‘chaotic accumulating Word file’ used as the basis for these solo performances is a collection of gathered fragments of text, overheard conversations, cut-and-paste excerpts and quotations.

The work was displayed at Oxford Central Library and Oxford University Language Centre as part of DIGITAL VOICES, alongside contributions from Patrick Coyle, Yuri Pattison and Tris Vonna-Michell, from 16 February – 16 March 2015.
