About

I am interested in accessible, everyday ways that people make sense of their environment through memories, stories and personal experience. My practice develops projects that generate material with local communities that is shared and celebrated in public space. Often site-specific, these projects respond to people and places through social engagement; collaboration involves: film, sound, photography, installation, digital and analogue technologies. Participants have included local communities, musicians, school children, senior citizens, scientists, gardeners, architects, on-line participants, and others.

Selected projects and exhibitions include: Lindholm (DEN, 2019); The Great Light and Dark Show (UK, 2019); Clubhouse and In-Situ Cinema (UK, 2018, 2016); Voiceover (Croatia, Poland, UK, 2015-17); Soundscape Milton Keynes (UK, 2017); Time Travellers of Dunstable (UK, 2014); Klangfarbe (DE & UK, 2014-15); Song Vessels (UK, 2013); Voices In The Forest (Canada, 2009); To Travel Somewhere (USA, UK, Finland, 2008).

Commissions and awards have included: Urban Cultural Planning, Guldborgsund Municipality, Denmark (2019-20); Lift The Lid, Quay Arts, Isle of Wight (2019); Bedford Creative Arts (2014, 2016, 2018); Creative Europe Programme (2015), Kunsthal Aarhus (2015); Arts Council England (2006, 2009, 2010); The British Council (2008); Adobe Systems (USA, 2008); British Telecom (2007); The British Film Institute (2000); Philips Multimedia (FR, 2000).
