the art of the fool
As an artist and teacher, I strive to open doors to ever widening realms of the imagination and to extend the borders of knowledge and creative capacity in the creative fields.
I work with art & design students, in performance & theater, with leaders, educators, children and in therapeutic settings. Workshops help students to explore the use of depth experience and play as sources for inspiration in contemporary art and design practice. «The art of the Fool» is a technique I have developed to explore the relationship between intelligent absurd naiveté and imagination and creativity.
I use aesthetics, consciousness studies and methods adapted from theatre, performance, dance and education to explore the “depths”. Depth experiences can be described as those that activate and extend the conscious, thoughtful and integrated awareness of the senses. They bring body, mind and emotions into movement so that each can inform the other. As a group, participants use the performative act to encourage the complex inter-play between the individual and the collective energies, which are waiting to be explored as a shared source.
