If all the mortar..

If all the mortar..turned to water.
A short film, using new and reworked material, that plays with our sense of scale and proportion on a number of levels. Is this a catastrophe or a storm in a teacup?
 

Project Notes 1

A Few Little Drops

Lighting inside the WaveIn one part of the installation video was projected onto a semi-transparent wall. Performers emerged from the shadows in a room beyond the screen to integrate their live physical presence with the video imagery.
 

Augustine

Lighting for danceIdeas from a period of research and development and collaboration included creating compositions and texture through use of a range of very minimal variations on white light, framing the space physically with lights, performers manipulating reflected light on stage.
 

Project Notes 2

More Curly

More CurlyThis collaboration with a choreographer created a room from multiple projections, viewed from the fourth wall and inhabited by dancers. It played with mass and perspective using travelling shots, surfaces and open landscapes. The majority of light came from the projections themselves.

Seascape

Technical lighting setupThis solo project was set up in a disused indoor market, visible through a series of windows on 2 sides, using computer controlled projection and light to appear to trap a series of slowly shifting and changing seascapes within a room on dry land. The cycles were programmed to run remotely only at night for 3 weeks.
