My current fascination is what I call 'transitional Cree culture', the place where Cree culture meets the onrush of millennial technology. I explore this fascination in performance and computer-based artworks. Using digital technologies I attempt to locate and query this meeting place, however fleeting. My work is a temporary roadmap. These maps are signposts of the moment, which I create to share.

I have been performing professionally since 1982, and began creating performance pieces in 1988. The links above under "Performance" showcase pieces made since 1993, with the most recent works at the top.

Since the late 90's my work has focused largely on two topics, "traditional" First Nations culture and technology. My practice investigates these topics both individually and queries the intersection of these two seemingly disparate phenomena.
