Rising

As part of Coastal Currents, Miranda Waugh and I collaborated on Rising,  a four-part film story exploring the layers of history that lie on the beach below the hut. Each film illuminates different images from the poem and, in situ, can be viewed independently or simultaneously using an augmented reality app that turns flat images on the wall into video content.

This was my first collaboration (together with Beach Hut Thumbnails, below) and the experience has been enormously positive. Working with Miranda towards a joint end was inspiring, and responding to the images took my engagement with the  projected in ways unforeseen at the start.

Coastal Currents

I’ve been putting final touches to one of the writing projects for Coastal Currents in St Leonards on Sea on the first two weekends in September.

This is an exciting joint project with Miranda Waugh exploring stories from the sea, collected and told using film, audio, photography, flash fiction and augmented reality. Add your voice to a new archive of coastal stories from the area.

If you’re in the area, come along—

An omissioner

Omissioner [n.]  an omissioner is a spiritual Lumpensammeller, a person employed to collect things cast off or considered of no use, e.g. string, cloth, bones. Now strictly a pastoral role, today’s omissioners wander the city with eyes in their shoes, looking in the low places for the worth in the parts of lives others deem insignificant or lost.
