20-05-2019 - PLANET X-RAY – END OF ROAD FESTIVAL 2019
EXCITED TO WORK ON AN INSTALLATION FOR ‘THE END OF ROAD FESTIVAL 2019’ – AN XRAY MACHINE FROM ANOTHER WORLD IS TO BE MADE TO TRANSPORT MEMBERS OF THE PUBLIC INTO THE SPIRITUAL WORLD OF EXTRA TERRESTRIAL BEINGS AND BEASTS.
The Institute for Animal Spirit Guides was developed for the Fling Festival and was very popular there for two years in a row. This time we would like to develop it further and incorporate making activities and a larger shadow screen. Both outings we were overwhelmed with the enthusiasm for the spirit guide test. What is interesting is that despite being obviously a spoof and a lighthearted artwork, participants cannot help but take aspects of it seriously. In the last installation participants were encouraged to ask their spirit guides a question. Often these were genuine questions about their lives. This makes touching and thought provoking interactions and interesting discussion amongst participants.

21-09-2018 - OPTOCAL SIGN
I am delighted to be asked to attend an interview to discuss my approach for a new exciting public art opportunity in Harlow, Essex.
ECDP is now an Arts Council National Portfolio Organisation (NPO) with a key role to play across Essex and the East of England in continuing to support diversity in arts and cultural practice. Their key strategy to achieve this is through a programme of exciting but challenging place-based commissions for artists to work in areas of Essex where there are opportunities to explore diversity through their practice. For 2018-19 they are focusing on five towns/places where community engagement in the arts has been traditionally low – Canvey Island, Harlow, Basildon, Grays and Jaywick Sands. Harlow is the focus of this commission.
