Nostalgia
A visual journal nostalgically viewing the past, and the fear of losing what you once had. It is made up of recordings I have taken over the past few years which happen to document my transition of my life in Nottingham to my life in Norwich.

Sow
Shades of childhood nostalgia, running through the "fields of wheat". A composition that serves to pinpoint that feeling and elaborate on it, with distorted crackles and melancholic keys scattered throughout. Art: The Drinking Boy - John Constable (1826)

Warm foothills
An alluring arrangement of pine trees caught my attention whilst biking in the woods. Looking through the viewfinder I could feel my eyes hopping from pine to pine, piecing the objects together in the delicate morning light to create a unified scene of tranquillity. I named the photograph after a...

Return drawing
I see this piece as an embodiment of all new possibilities and chances offered to us in our lives. Each line represents a new beginning which is a sine qua non of an ending too. I tried to capture and record the minute manifestations of movement in the train on my way to London and back. I had in...

Fusion
When making this piece I was thinking about both the New Beginnings theme and the Union theme and the ways that in nature for new life or new beginnings to occur often there must be a union, a fusion of elements occurs to create something new. I decided to represent this in an abstract way using...

The Kiss
The image of Karis Lambert, Transfiguration and the image of T.M.A. Disconnected connections inspired me, The movement of the figures in both images are superb. For this image of kissing people I used intentional camera movement (ICM).

In the garden
When experimenting with a new filming technique, I realised how the garden seems like a different world and where a lot of folk lore and stories come from. The insects have a world and agenda of their own. The film technique is lense whacking which is when you hold a lense away from the body of...

People of Wonder

Fear of Intimacy
I found the idea in "Full of blood, no sound emerging" of the emotions of love and horror co-existing with each other simultaneously to be a very relatable one. How many of us have felt love towards another human being, yet have been too scared to put ourselves out there? This forms the...

Dear Diary
"This is what I did today and this is what it looked like" inspired me to think of a common human desire: to chronicle our lives in some way. Whether it's through public means, such as social media or artwork in any form, or through private methods, such as a diary, we all want to list...

House Cyanistes
The descripition of Bluetits as having ‘cobalt wings’ and being ‘natures flute’ just triggered something. I’ve been using Heraldry as a framework recently and this was the result.

The Warren Prince
Rabbits are woven into the folktales of many cultures. They are tricksters, symbols of fertility and luck, I tried to strip this back to a simple image, but the nature of the process means the path of the yarn is knotted and twists recording unseen information.

Eye Phone
Loved the idea of hijacking a brand and as a person who does a lot of outdoor field recording I have often had a recording spoilt by the irritation of the iphone ringtone! So what better why then to use this ringtone as the basis for a hijack! I had good fun making this.
