2014 to 2015 is a period of writing the book: 'Crashing Culture' the story of an artist from the 60s to the present day, and work on performance of 'Word Body Oject' as a development from objects of light in perception.
Eye Projects is an attempt to translate or transpose philosophic
constructs through an accessible or 'Universal' language of
performance, in this sense the earlier 'PORTFOLIO' archive from 2000
represents this experimental phase of the work, and where the artists
involved have worked sporadically, yet persistently, and through a
number of phases, as a result of this approach.
The web site and specifically the portfolio of past work therefore, is a 'canvas' or
portal for this experience, and as much as for the performers, as for an
'audience'. The artists involved, have at differing stages and
from their own perspectives, further'd their own ideas
through the vehicle of the 'imaginativeeye'
Eye Projects therefore, is a new direction, in that 'the projects'
visualised and completed, have been inaugurated in the light of the
'The Whatever' investigations.
'Eye Projects' has been established specifically to realise a creative
space that sits beyond what is already imagined in any collaboration,
or configuration. It is therefore always in a state of preparedness
for action. A form of will to action, vita activa.

this site will now be structured thus: each artist with their own page, but other references to the right stay the same
