    THE WILD ONES I THE BORED ONES This video remix looks at the similarities of oil nations in the Gulf and London. How London becomes a holyfree playground for the rich Qataris and Kuwatis every summer. It draws similarity between Western Cowboy tropes and the bored oil youth of the East. What pole dancing is in the West is what belly dancing and 'the eastern twerk' is to the East. In both cultures the female dancers are rewarded with money, most at weddings - it has to be said.

    Las Vegas or Dubai - Pole dancing - Belly dance. SAME SAME

    - ReVisited material has been used to make this music short, yet still original in its own expression. More importantly it is a huge ode and respect and nod to the original creators.

    FORBIDDEN LOVE This film is looking at religion, its role towards lust and sex and love. It's examing the relationship between a man and a woman with different cultural and religious backgrounds, who are accused for comitting a crime. A crime of desire: To be in lust. It is also looking at the role of religious male dominance, the concept of virginity and/or innocence, and how morals and shame still trenscend into modern society, and how lust and desire is still a big taboo. Especially the female desire, but also between different belief systems, cultures and races.

  3. "SAINTS OR SINNERS - MUSES OF GOD OR SATAN?" (Research & project development)

    These videos are compilations of footage found and remixed into small 'music videos' for research and project development purpose only. To set a mood, highlight an emotion or a subject matter.

    THE FOOL
    This film is looking at the complexity in the relationship between the artist and their audience. How one cannot exist without one and other. How both sides crave the other's attention. However the role of the artist is more fragile as the artist depends on their audience. It's their livelihood. The border between love and hate is paper thin, and equally so is the relationship between private and public.

    This film is also sidelining the role of the woman. The female portrait. The male gaze. The role of an artist - Do women/artists only see their selfworth, when looked through the eyes of the other, and therefore objectifying themselves?

  4. How we sold our feelings and minds to the loudest bidder, and made make-believe become our belief system. The flaws of our leaders perfectly mirror the emotional underdevelopment of the society that elevates them to power!

    "Mirror, mirror, on the wall, Who in this land is fairest of all?"

    "The blander and more homogenised the product, the more distinctive the mask it needs to wear" ~ George Monbiot

    "During the US presidential elections, Trump's noisy persona DISTRACTED people from the intellectual void behind the MASK - a VOID now filled by more lucid representatives of global capital.

    Celebrities might inhabit your life, but they are not your friends. Regardless of the intentions of those on whom it is bequeathed, celebrity is the lieutenant of EXPLOITATION.

    Let’s turn our neighbours back into our neighbours, and turn our backs on those who impersonate them."

    ~ George Monbiot
