A priori is an open and continuous series of performances concerned with locating and harnessing ‘idea’ through the artist’s pursuits and existential exchanges with different materials and consequential forms.

Further to this, Neale Donald Walsh said “A life of choice is a life of conscious action. A life of chance is a life of unconscious creation”. I propose “A sculpture of choice is a sculpture of conscious action. A sculpture of chance is a sculpture of unconscious creation”.
