Tiny Live Art is a personal research project with various iterations and incarnations. It has been a durational installation, a community/audience feedback model, a large scale commissioned artwork, and an ongoing hobby project.

This PaR project is informed and underpinned by theories and practices of performance documentation, re-enactment (e.g. Heathfield & Jones, 2012; Schneider, 2011), and the making and sharing of memory (Bergson, 1911, et al), and draws from aspects of street art, installation and hobbyist pursuits like model railway and airfix kit building. Taking inspiration from artists like Slinkachu, Isaac Cordal, Liliana Porter, Lisa Swirling and Jimmy Cauty, Tiny Live Art uses miniature figures and dioramas to create 1:87 scale sculptures of seminal performance works.
