Extinction Rebellion

In September the Murdoch printing presses were blocked by protesters occupying two bamboo tensegrity towers – made from poles seemingly suspended in the air. This act successfully frustrated the Murdoch organisation’s control over the UK news media, if only for a day.
Extinction Rebellion were subsequently described as ‘the last remaining authentic High Tech architects’ and ‘organised crime’.

Happy Days

A new video project developed during, and about the lockdown.

The video multiplies the image of a single performer who becomes an indeterminate and ambiguous entity, reflecting the cognitive dissonance experienced by many during lockdown, facing a menacing but unknown threat. There are up to nine people in the house, versions of the same person. There are good things and bad things: fights, bids to escape, dancing, self-inflicted torture.

At Home in Gaza and London

In January 2016 we held a two-week online workshop with artists from Gaza and London, as part of the LIFT Digital Utopia project, culminating in a public event at Watermans Arts Centre, London and Al Meshal, Gaza City.  Audiences in both locations joined a live collaboration based on the realities and dreams of everyday life in the two cities.
