Pot hole

2015

The short video 'Pot hole' utilizes an exhausted road space. By exhausted I mean; 

 

A pot hole is truly exhausted in the sense they seem to serve nothing more than a potential threat. They are unwanted, the only value associated with them seem to be faith in solution from a community or individual.

 

Human routine is excercised however divorced from a 'usual' setting.

Bent Alley

  2015

'Bent Alley' - 2015

Runtime: 00:00:52

Dimensions: 1280 x 720

This short film/installation 'Bent Alley' consists of an alternative route of travel.

The monitor which harbours the video poses a physical threat and also deals with the possibilities of conequence with in it's feeble support.

Orderly lines outside the original setting of the video propose a similar route or extension yet regress to a dead end.

Runtime: 00:00:56

The exclusive duck pond located in Folkestone, Kent, lower Radnor Park, held tales of filth and tittle-tattle rumour, enough to warrant intrusion.

 

A simple excercising of rights are carried out according to what the pond (indirectly) has to offer.
