Materials: correction fluid and mirrors, sometimes with a light component.
The White Breath mirror-correction works have taken various forms: discrete pieces (Performance Anxiety, 2004); site-specific and ephemeral interventions (A Short Ride in a Fast Machine, 2005); and large installations (White Breath (bond), 2000). Two large pairs of works were made in 2009: Respiro Bianco (non ho sonno) for the exhibition Lo Sguardo di Giano at the American Academy in Rome and White Breath (Passenger) which featured in Mirror Mirror: Then and Now, Institute of Modern Art, Brisbane / Tin Sheds Gallery, Sydney University / Samstag Museum of Art, Adelaide (2009-10).

A series of three dozen small circular mirror-correction works formed the basis of The Waste of Breath at Lights Projects, Melbourne (solo - 2010). These works were the germ that developed into Mouthpiece at Milani Gallery, Brisbane (solo - 2011).
