BLIND SITES

PHOTOGRAPHY SERIES

2012

This was my first serious landscape photography project, prior to my MA in Photography and Cinema. The work involved the exploration of Huddersfield's canals and waterways, looking for the remnants of industry in this strangely quiet part of town.

One of the most interesting things I noticed was how the town seemed to turn its back on the river, all the windows bricked up and blind, nothing overlooking the water at all, in fact. Growing up in Bedford, a town of embankment promenades and river festivals, I found this to be rather strange.

CLOSING RAGGED KINGDOM

AV PERFORMANCE

2012

With the Urban Exploration collective I curated the closing party for Jamie Reid's Ragged Kingdom exhibition at Temple Works, in Leeds. Our group performed live at the event improvising for four hours collaborating with various different artists, including Jenny Kosmowsky (opera singer/artist), Rowan Reid (singer songwriter) and UMCorps (ambient electronics). UE used two modular synthesizers, three tape echos and various home-made instruments and effects to create the sound - the huge 80,000 sq foot main space in Temple Works was also used as a live echo chamber.
