Nature, culture, mythology and technology all coalesce in these performances. A vital and significant relationship between the spectator and her work is brought about by the movement of these performances: they evoke astonishment or it is precisely this sense of wonder that the spectator awaits in anticipation, followed by an expectation that this sense of wonder will be repeated.
