Artist Statement

A lot of my memory is the neighbourhood underneath scaffolding and cranes. Earthmoving Anxiety is a piece of choreography imagining the end of development. 

The promise of capitalism is progress, the endless acceleration of technology and society.
This dance between two excavators and their operators thinks about the limits of progress and asks: “If there was an end to building where would the earthmovers go?
