  This work consists of an exploded diagram presenting the distillation of an ongoing attempt to draft an opera based upon George Perec’s La Vie mode d’emploi (Life: A User’s Manual) (1978) - a famously labyrinthine novel. The two dimensional components can be read through multiple relations with each other each depending on the viewer’s physical perspective. All of the requisite components of the opera are outlined within the work.
My interests lie in explorations of trauma, memory, serialisation, place, erasure and trace. These themes are explored through sound, installation, theoretical research, conceptual archaeology, cartography, and archival work.
