Aimee Labourne works with the idea of imagined rooms and structures, painting from photographs of real places and her memories of them, to piece together a new space. Beautiful and eery...
Mindscape is an atmospheric animation by Laura Adams created entirely from charcoal drawings. Set in a dark and mysterious building where strange occurrences take place and objects become personified.
Alex goodman responds to the theme of the house through poetry. Investigating ghosts that haunt the walls that shelter the body from the cold sea winds and give space for narratives of lives past to unravel.
by Federico Reuben and Keith Micheal
Could be more omelette than disco!
Live electronic sound and percussion exploring combinations of musical and non musical sound sources.
Federico Reuben and Keith Michael augment their known pallet of sampled and percussive sounds with the even more familiar mix of everyday functional house sounds.
"Like a child I am interested in the miniature/interior. Endlessly fascinated by secret chambers and unexpected views of the otherwise hidden. Like a glimpse through imperfectly closed curtains to the interior of a life unknown"
The House Key
by Ellie Swingler
Transforming household objects and embedding them with new meaning to become surreal, symbolic and personified. In this film an entire world is spun out of a single key through visual and written poetry.
Swingler is a multidisciplinary artist and creator of The Sketch House.
by Sound artist Dom Allen and poet Alex Goodman
A small wooden house with pictures lit inside its windows.
Combining visual and audio poetry to create a flickering collage of loss, and the family that lived there.
By returning to a piece of writing this project builds a new house for an old poem.
