As an artist, an employee and the mother of a 3-year-old child my performance practice has had to adapt in reaction to needing to fulfil all three roles. I have responded to this by creating a group performance featuring members of my family reflecting our routines, actions and performances of our daily lives. Throughout the performance, I continually spin a single plate on a stick while tidying up as my husband and son carry out their specific actions around me. My action is intended to be a visual metaphor that represents me trying to maintain a continual life balance and attempting to do more than one thing at a time as we move together in and out of sequence.
