'Struthio Camelus':
Creating an accessory for my body which I had to put myself into rather than put on was the starting point for this piece. The combination of the chlostrophic feeling of the barrell filled with featheres and the sound used to make the featheres move made the piece an intense environemtn to 'wear'.
