Cultural Embodiment is the somatic INTEGRATION of information about the physical environmental world and human sciences anthropology through perception and awareness of the body.
An ongoing pursuit with multimedia and interdisciplinary arts studies to create expressions of divinity and synthesis of human mind - body - soul. The work aims is to mediate western scientific and eastern philosophical concepts of yoga and embodied ritual and temple studies . The key areas of research are related to the mystical and biomedical of the human body. My work applies the use of modern technology, ANCIENT RITUALS, meditation, eco-somatic dance, and YOGA to contemplate these ideas.
Connection to EMBODIED CULTURE has formed through an enduring practice of yoga; the inquisition of the physical and somatic body in relation to the natural environment, focussing on enriching the experience of consciousness through deep bodywork. My studies in fine arts, interdisciplinary sculpture, and museology expanded this exploration as to how culture and the essence of the sacred is expressed. Ultimately, the practice is an exploration of the body, breath and consciousness to expand cultural awareness, connection to the sacred and ephemeral of intangible heritage, liminal experience and ritual.

In my practice I utilise embodied, process-led practices experienced by the body as the groundwork for a multidisciplinary visual and cultural exploration. The work seeks to weave together divergent modes of presentation in order for audiences to better integrate their bio and somatic experience of themselves in their mediated environment, cultural group and soverign soul.
