work made for 'Transience', a year long commission spent in Nercoche, in the Blackdown Hills on the Somerset-Devon border as part of the 'Reveal Somerset' commissions (Neroche Scheme & Somerset Artworks). The web based digital artwork tracked events and species migrating or passing through the landscape.

driving through Culmstock tiny bird standing facing white
line at edge of road stopped looked small bird standing still stunned picked it up you know that amazing feeling when you hold a small bird i filmed it sorry small bird but we had to collaborate somehow fast heart beat fluttering body held light in my rapt warm hand i sensed the power of my strength in the lightness of its eye i saw its head flatten at the passing of the truck that could have been its end breath thinnest legs placed on grass bird still bird looking around then flew up into the tree and gone turn back to the car
