The Valentines - Landslide (2011) Fan video using elements from The Hunger (1983)
VHS capture , black and white filter
Using repetition to accent key moments , always the same , always different . 4:3 is fast becoming long forgotten but I love the claustrophobia it tends to bring .

This be the Verse (2011) Single screen version of 6 screen Installation
"They fuck you up your, mum and dad . They may not mean to but they do .
They fill you with the faults they had . And add some extra just for you .
But they were fucked up in their turn . By fools in old-style hats and coats ,
Who half the time were soppy-stern . And half at one anothers throats .
Man hands on misery to man . It deepens like a coastal shelf .
Get out as early as you can . And don't have any kids yourself. "
Thankful for your cooperation (2010) 8mm triptych installed inside Rottingdean Windmill
This work explores notions of memory , loss and the fragile and contingent nature of the experiences and thoughts that make us . The central cortex is framed by an idle mill which is a cogent symbol of adversity .
