The Long Beautiful Wait

In the words of The Laboratory Arts Collective "You have heard the whispers and it's true. The long beautiful wait is over." At least it is almost over. DESIRE launches on 24th October. It has been an absolute joy and pleasure to work with The Laboratory on the materialization of "Pushing the Pink or The Impossibilities of Pink-ness."
For now, you have the pinkest of teases..........

Numerical Patterns of Memory on 11th

It is 2 years since my siblings and I cremated our Mother. Recently, I found these small films, taken on 11th July 2013, which I realize now was exactly 2 months prior to our saying goodbye. Mum was nearing the end of her life and yet her garden was overflowing with life and the flowers teamed with the heavy hum of pollen laden bees.

Tumbleweed (as witness), 2015.

Tumbleweed is a process piece that bares witness to a relationship. Intermittently and over very many months, the silk mohair is crocheted and intertwined with human hair.  The hair from one man; head hair, facial hair, underarm hair, pubic and chest hair along with the hair from one woman; head hair, underarm and pubic hair. Initially all of the hairs, whether curly, straight, smooth, short or wiry were capriciously combined and interlaced into the mix. But as time passed and the process went on, the silk mohair would/could only tangle with the hairs of the woman.

Five Words for Lou.

I was asked to provide a short film containing five words for Lou. Strictly speaking this is four words + Lou.

Stepping the Steps (along a found blue line), 2015

A blue line trailed down and then up the steps of the Museo Nacional Centro de Arte Reina SofĂ­a in Madrid. It seemed natural to trace and step the steps..........
