Ars Longa,Vita Brevis

A performance as part of Flare 2 - Body Works, Excavating the In/visible
Gallery North, University of Northumbria, The Late Shows 10
May 2016


A 30 minute performance where I test run my newly acquired exercise bike. During the ride I demonstrate its value as an aid to enjoyment and creativity, drawing on a range of subjects from colour theory to American rappers, philosophy, feminism and fashion.

On completion of the ride I elicit responses from the audience as to how I can improve my performance.
