An image of the artist's hand is layered over images of the interior of his hospital room, reaching towards the window. The room is filled with lights that look as though they have all spun together, and the image has a grainy film-like quality to it.

'I'm Ready To Talk Now' is an immersive piece unpacking isolation, boredom, sunlight and awe - all from the inside of a hospital room. Music, projection, and physical theatre are used to unpack the worlds we must create when we are alone, and how our relationship to sunlight changes when we cannot move. A fusion of theatre, performance art, and art installation, the work can only be viewed alone with the artist.
