Age is automatically seen as obsolence until you turn it on its side and see it can shed new light. A funky little mini projector breathes new life into a beautiful Moviscop that stood gathering dust when it was no longer needed to edit analogue film. Both objects love the process so much, you could almost imagine them mating.

This assemblage is part of an ongoing ‘Practice as Research’ deep-mapping centred around Iceland, where I have family connections. Other works include a performance involving sharing of aromatic objects, a number of video paintings, and sculptural objects involving lava, volcanic dust, fishbones and dried plant materials.
