Melbourne Fringe Focus: Murti

Describe your show in a tweet: A lifesize phallic statue, the symbol of life, sits awaiting its consecration by layers of thick and glossy paint poured by you, in an ode to an Hindu ritual.

Why did you decide to do Fringe 2015? Being a part of Fringe is a great opportunity to contribute to the colour and variety of Melbourne's perpetually boiling creativity. This year I wanted to take the first step into sharing my interactive exhibition, Murti, with the public. Having the persistence and encouragement of the Fringe staff (especially when venues fall through) has been invaluable; 'the show must go on!' attitude is one of the reasons why I love the Fringe.

Tell us a bit about the creative team working on the project: Murti is a contemporary adaption of a Hindu ritual, where I create an installation for the viewers to participate in a creative process. Without the participation of the viewers there is no art. On the night, we are all the creative team.

In a fantasy world, who would you be the love child of and why? I would be the love child of oil and water, because I would like to see the physical laws of this fantasy world, and what would happen if they were to ever mix.
