I am currently working on an autobiographical hybrid feature production entitledMy Finest Hour and a Half. This 90-minute film weaves dramatic re-enactment, documentary, animation and archival material from past projects, in performative self-reflective investigation into identity formation.
I am co-investigator on an interdisciplinary art-design project located in Cardiff Bay Barrage, partnered with Cardiff Council and Cardiff story Museum. Working alongside poetry theorist Dr Alice Entwistle and information technology expert Dr Fiona Carroll. Inspired by words taken from Virginia Woolf’s modernist novel To The Lighthouse, So Much Depends will transform the unusual manmade space of the 1.2km long of the Barrage Harbour Arm (opened in 1999) into an enriched immersive/projective and multi-dimensional visitor experience .linking the barrage to Flat Holm Island, and its lighthouse, lying in the Bristol Channel some 2.5 km offshore.
