TRAVELLER is an object with an inbuilt mechanism that launches balls of paper. The work, which is sometimes placed in the landscape and sometimes in an exhibition space, catapults scrunched up paper balls that the viewer can catch and unfold. The balled-up sheets of paper contain instructions for short actions intended to activate the senses and set the body and mind in motion. Words are literally cast into the air, like spoken sentences. These simple prompts act as poetic proposals for alternative scenarios that are brought to fruition in the moment. They invite the participant to act: activate, anticipate, catch, comprehend.
