This new work explores the garden through the primacy of phenomenology and the past, focusing on the five senses this film considers ways in which our bodies are the primary point of contact with the world around us. The film is informed by the medieval tapestry “La Dame à la Licorne” which depicts a woman and a unicorn among a garden full of animals and plants. This work investigates a possible sixth sense through the poetry of the garden, the insistence of ritual, and a different way of letting things grow…

Exhibited at The Pod, as part of the Coventry Biennial

This Halloween celebrate with a weekend of tales of Irish folklore, the Feast of the Samhain and haunting music at the Púca Festival in the land where it all began more than 2,000 years ago

How does communication get distorted in the virtual realm? How does the sharing of emotions get fragmented? An attempt to express the conflict between long-distance and honesty, lust and bonding, a situation that leads to confused and turbulent states of mind.

Exhibited at metro media space 'Ojaemidong', Seoul, as part of Obviously Video exhibition

"Ghost Time is an imagined temporality that emerged out of a conversation between Paul and Alix, in which transgressions occur across realms, across what exists inside the rotting fruit, under the compost lid, alongside the cracks, inside repurposed bathtubs…. Ghost Time is an agitated-stillness, a still-agitation. A fomenting/fermenting ground. Water just before it boils. The soundscape, which loops the shift across Garden Time and Ghost Time, produces different readings of the space and artwork, but keeps the installation grounded inside the garden and at times pushes us out of the domestic feel of the work, of its pillows and book, drapes and clothes."

Exhibited at the Tent Gallery, Edinburgh, as part of Art, Space and Nature Studio Residency

An exploration of the musicality of sound that exists in urban and natural environments, through experimentation in recording sounds from water, air and different surfaces.
This polynomial mapping leads to a wealth of results depending on the values of different variables. Results that have been sonified, with a complex system of relationships revealed through the perception of harmonic intervals.

Strange Loops; consciousness in purgatory; awaking and going back into the darkness. A short about illusions/realities/dreams.


Exhibited at Austin's Experimental Student Film Festival and at Bristol Cube Cinema 'Blue Screen'.
