I have been producing some kind of visual art for most of my life and am currently working on making short videos on a small digital camera. The shorts are often journeys taken by public transport or site specific situations. I am interested in personal narratives and journeys I compose music and a primitive sort of poetry for them. I am interested in collaborating with musicians and poets. The shorts often suggest stories. I live in Devon and like filming there, but also like to go to cities to film (Bristol and London). I would like to travel around Europe making short films of life in those places.
My work for 'Shorts, moments and narratives' takes the form of moving image shorts, stills and narratives transforming essential issues of human existence into the language of the moving image. I choose moments from the movies and make sketches of details from these images. The moments express a very brief portion, or particular point, of time which are often obscure and out of focus in the movies. By working this way, surprising results can arise.
At present I am working on making figurines of characters from the moments.
