An evening of intimacies, given and taken.

'Moon', 2014 - Slow tracking through a photographic darkroom. Repeated out of place flashes from the camera interrupt the integrity of the darkness. Malfunction and mistake are seemingly aided by the glimpsed human intervention to an ill defined purpose and process.

Also included a work in progress version of - 'The Pleasure, the Privilege', 2016 - Filmed in a garden and woodlands in Cornwall. Based on short sequences unified through sung vocals from The Smiths song 'There is a light that never goes out', which is laid over ambient sounds of insects and birds. The film shifts between devised and incidental vignettes joined to form an enquiring observation of environment; reflecting emotive pull and heightened observation.
