Camille Norment’s practice includes sound, installation, light sculptures, drawing, performance and video and draws upon her experience in music, dance and the arts. Her research crosses disciplines, exploring the interconnections between sound, myth, taboo and science within the framework of art and history. Her work is largely concerned with creating experience through the relationship between object/space and the body of the viewer, and with the way the body is inscribed with meaning through its negotiation with its surroundings. Moreover it seeks to engage the viewer as a physical and psychological participant in the work, and as such, is interested in creating experiences that are both somatic and cognitive.
