About

Sam is a performance artist, educator and researcher based in Nottingham and working across the East Midlands, with a background in architecture and physical theatre.

They are currently engaged in developing theories of the body in space through practice based research. Sams work is often interested in revealing notions of ‘mechanisms’ and ‘workings’ in technology and imagining. Their research interest can be described within the emerging field of design anthropology with a particular focus on anthropology of the senses and somatics. Sam immerses them-self in postures and movements that emerge from digital technology and body interactions. They are motivated by the tacit knowledge of the body, what the body learns when nobody is watching.

Sam creates  participatory performance responding to architecture. Sam is a member of Guerrilla Art Lab, Nottingham.

Sam has researched performance, technology and museum education for a number of organisations including Manchester Metropolitan University, Nottingham Contemporary and Nottingham Museums and Galleries.
