In my teaching I am looking for a combination of art education and anthropology. I think that the two disciplines can gain a lot from each other. I draw on anthropologist Tim Ingold when I say that art should be seen as a way of doing anthropology: “a way of opening the senses to experience, linked through a common set of experiences.”

The practice of making art is a way of engaging with the world around us.

Originally, aesthesis refers to our disposition to take in the world through the senses. My teaching, therefore, is all about experience based learning.


“To improvise is to follow the ways of the world, as they open up, rather than to recover a chain of connections, from an end-point to a startingpoint, on a route already travelled.”
