‘Passage’ is now open at The Verne. The last few days have been pretty hectic setting up, with the usual unpredictable mix of things not working according to plan. However, […]
The hawk that I filmed for ‘Passage’ is being used to advertise the b-side festival which opens this Friday. I have just been sent this pic of a billboard close to […]
Short post today, as busy trying to complete things before going on holiday. I am currently working with Dan Hughes McGrail on reshaping a falconry hood to fit a human […]
I haven’t had this much fun video editing for a long time. Working with the footage – which was taken back in February is atrocious conditions (the weekend Portland got […]
So when you come to see Passage (invitation will be on the way soon!) in the Verne, we are going to have to keep a tally of who goes in and who […]
Good morning, good morning: I am rediscovering the delights of starting work early in the summer months, rising with the sun (or a little after!). So, this week it is […]

A final image from ‘A Space for the Bittern’, and a thank you to the more than 100 people that came to see the installation at Waterhay (on a weekend […]
