 A performance at the Supersonic festival. The performance took place in a large warehouse and involved a string quartet on stage and then dotted randomly around the room were 4 bass players, 4 guitarists, 4 drummers and a female performance artist.   The lights were turned off and the room was lit with roving strobes and smoke machines. The performance started before the doors were open. Once the performance started the audience were let in. The audience then found their way through the smoke and watched in an area of their choice. The rules for the musical performers was to play no melody or repetitive beat. Part way through the performance the female performance artist walked through the crowd gradually taking items of clothes off.  The performance looked at the ideas of experience and the power of experiencing something that is all engulfing and lacks any prior knowledge. As the performance progresses the audience gets used to what is happening. For this reason the performance artist is introduced to enhance the audience experience and and once again remove any understanding of what is happening. The suggestion is that the use of sex within an environment where it is not the norm is a powerful mechanism to heighten experience.     
       
     
 A collaborative 24 hour performance by Lash Frenzy and German artist Christian Jendreiko. The performance took place at East Side Gallery in Birmingham and was open to the public.   Guitars, bass and percussion were used. Christian had a fixed set of notes/scales/chords that he used and the Lash Frenzy performers respond to each and every situation with abstract sound.  Performers included; Andrew, Christian Jendreiko, Si Rider, Peter Brown, Alexis Brown, David Dunphy, Simon Fox, Gavin Wade, Jonathan Parker.  The 24 hour timescale allowed performers to explore performance with less regard to linear time.
       
     
 A commission made for the 'Cinema of Transgression' retrospective. 3 separate photo graphs were installed in two grotty toilets of a gallery. In one toilet a life size mirror image print was installed in a frame looking back at the person sitting on the toilet. In the second toilet two framed pictures had double exposed images of punk looking model shot in the same position/location as the viewer would be standing. The lighting in the toilets had blue filters. The frames were covered in burnt tin foil.     The work continued Lash Frenzy's work in multiple time frames but also combined the morbid attraction of gritty, junkie, punk, outsider, sexual aesthetics of the cinema of transgression. The blue lighting used was the same as that used in public toilets to prevent drug addicts from finding their veins to inject.    
       
     
 A Lash Frenzy performance at the Asylum in Birmingham. 4 girls played noise guitar while Peter Brown and Mort the Sonic created digital noise hidden from the stage. The girls were brought on stage in Orange robes and owl masks. The were de-robed and 'presented' to the audience   The work continued the notions of the confusion of sex within a suspension of logical narrative and time. Pauline Reage's 'The Story of O' was the back drop for the piece and added to the confusion of 'who is this for', 'what is happening' and 'why is this happening'

 This was the final piece of work for the Master in Fine Art.  The viewer entered in to the room through a long orange tunnel. Once through the blacked out room the audience found themselves in a room with projections covering each of the 4 walls. The projections take influence from Duchamp's 'Nude Descending a Staircase' and had multiple moving images from multiple angles laid over the top of each other and looped. A 5.1 surround sound system was installed and played Lash Frenzy's 'C'  
       
     
 A photo of girl jumping from the high board at Tudor Grange baths in Solihull.  The two photos superimposed on top of each other continued to explore the aesthetic attraction of one moment showing multiple moments.
       
     
 An extension of 'Drrrrrrrr', this Piece looked at encountering something and potentially facilitating the sublime.  Three listening posts were installed in various wild location in the Pyrenees playing Lash Frenzy's 'C' performance on a loop. The work considered Edmund Burke's notion of the sublime of a majestic mountain view and looked at the possibilities of becoming a catalyst for the sublime. 
       
     
 Part of the fine art masters this installation had an analogue valve amplifier playing Lash Frenzy's 'C' performance on a loop in the corridor of a public space.  The work looked at unexpected experience. A passer by had no prior knowledge that it was there and there was no description text next to it. 
       
     
 A montage of photos of me's over the years. The image was presented as a set of 4, reminiscent of a photo booth print.  The piece looked at the nostalgia of many moments considered in memory through one single moment.
       
     
 A photo portrait of a sister, a brother and a girlfriend. 
       
     
 A painting that expands Barnet Newman's 'flash' and creats 'moments' rather than a single 'moment'. Each line has a different gradient, exploring the idea of a decaying moment that is happening 'now'.
