An interactive/media artwork for one person at a time. Each participant enters a large, dark space containing two circles of projected film imagery presented within an immersive sound environment. One image floats upon a disc of white sand and the other on a circle of white dust. Participants’ movements direct and affect the filmic image and spatialised audio experience. Throughout the work a layer of dust (an artificial life form) slowly eats away and infuses itself deep into the imagery and sound. Each person has 10 minutes alone with the work. Their movement through the space continually affects speed, quality, balance and flow within the work. At the end of the experience they are invited to climb a lit platform and cast dust back onto the images below.

Shifting Intimacies resulted from an ICA/Arts Council England co-commission for Capture 4 and was generously supported by a residency at the Centre for Media Research (CMR) at the University of Ulster. Site Gallery and Vincent Dance Theatre also leant time and precious resources. Shifting Intimacies was further supported by the Australian Government through the Australia Council, its arts funding and advisory body and the Queensland Government through Arts Queensland. Capture4 is managed by PortlandGreen, for Arts Council England. We would also like to thank Joc Curran from The Zoo, Julie Dean and Marion Conrow for their generous support.

'WarkaWater' is a project conceived for the mountainous regions in Ethiopia, where women and children walk several hours to collect water. To ease this dramatic condition, the studio ‘Architecture and Vision’ is developing the project ‘WarkaWater’ which is harvesting potable water from the air and honors the disappearing Ethiopian warka trees. The 9 m tall bamboo framework has a special fabric hanging inside capable to collect potable water from the air by condensation. The lightweight structure is designed with parametric computing, but can be built with local skills and materials by the village inhabitants.
