Travelling between landscapes, from the natural environment through to the built. Living in symbiosis, one sculpts the other, in a continuous state of flux.

Rattle is an experimental poetry film born from poet, artist & filmmaker Mark Niehus. Read and move through the engaging flash of images that hang from the cuffs of a poem that reminds us that “We rattle because we are made of moments too many to hold fast.”

MESH THE PLACE UP.50 is a moving image work created through the animation of analogue and digital media. These abstracted city visions and wobbly portraits envision the computerised flow of imagined beings in a morphing cyberscape; the squishy populace of a digital mesh.
