A Goddess' Cloak should never have Seams
All Souls Church, Cheriton High St.
An interactive project for Strange Cargo's Winter Light Festival.
Inspired by a Chinese fairytale promoting good craftsmanship and attention to detail. Over the course of 2 nights, participants filed through the church adding loops of neon 'stitches' to a cloak. At the end of the festival, a 'goddess' was selected to wear the cloak and parade down the street with her attendants in celebration of the work created together.
Neon tape, protective blanket foil, UV light
Testatment (Bible Weave)
Katse Kerk, Nord beveland, Netherlands
An invited interactive residency, part of 'Kunstspoor' Art Festival.
Over the course of a week, visitors to the Church watched The Old Testament of the English Bible being folded and 'woven' into an intricate herringbone pattern on a roll or 'cloth', which fell from the pulpit. The work was finally finished in 2020 and displayed at SoShiro House in Marylebone by JaggedArt.

Commissioned by The Creative Foundation in Folkestone, a family drop-in workshop, building on cardboard bases with a limited colour pallet. The pyramids grew off the cardboard and across the windows of Block 67.
Southwark Town Hall
Project funded by Camberwell Arts. Moulds of children’s feet collected from all over the borough and installed for Camberwell Arts Week. The many coloured pairs of feet ‘marched’ up the left side of the Town hall and then down again the right side, referencing the Pied Piper of Hamlyn and the vast creative resource that lies in the next generation.
A giant map, filled in by local residents, based entirely on what they remember.
