I think one of the main ideas is to have a mixture of different kinds of things. And the first one was the neon work that says "THINGS" and to have sculptures as well and paintings and there's gonna be also live – well I've done a talk, which is a kind of live work, including songs, and I'm going to be doing the ballet. I don't know what materials are best so I try to use as many different materials as I can.
The point of the ballet work, which is gonna be toward the end of the residency is that that actually, to me part of the point of that is, as much as it is a dance piece, to me it's a mixture of stuff that brings together a lot of the other sculpture and video and visual work as well as live work, so the point for me of the ballet is actually to try to jumble everything together in one work. So if the residency is a jumble of different things and over one year, the ballet is a microcosm of that and that's one of the reasons I've been working on that so much in recent years, cause it feels like the theatrical show of – which has been called the ballet so far, when I've done it, it feels like there's a chance to put together lots of different things in one place.
