Moore uses lo-fi materials to create drawings or sculptures that accompany live performances, offering a different way for people to read the work. Often her use of objects is playful and focuses attention of the material qualities of those objects. For example, during the course of a live work that took place on a train journey: a man squeezed onto a busy carriage holding a large, transparent globe with a geometric shape inside it; two people unfurled a long roll of paper on a platform; in a park visible from outside a carriage window, one person ran with a flag and a second person ran behind, trying to light the flag with a torch. Moore is also a musician and this performance was a combination of music, words and objects.
