This is an attempt at expressing my own practice in relationship to the Live Art Development Agency and Live Art.

Nearly over 1000 portraits in this video have been taken as part of various motiroti projects since 1999. Each portrait conceals a negotiation between the people in front on my lens, conversations that lead to the moment where people choose the photograph that represents them best and the relationships that grow as a result of it.

People, telling, re-telling, and sharing stories is what gives the LIVE element to my work, defining, re-defining even though the work can be experienced or distributed in many different formats.

It is the agency of the people and public that makes my world go tick tock!

Thank you Lois, Daniel and Andrew for inviting me to create a one-minute contribution for your 10th anniversary.
