    THIS MUST BE THE PLACE

    There's no place like home. It's where we live, work and dream. It's our sanctuary and our refuge. We can love them or hate them. It can be just for the night or for the rest of our lives. But whoever we may be, we all have a place we call home.

    THIS MUST BE THE PLACE is a series of short films that explore the idea of home; what makes them, how they represent us, why we need them.

    We're always on the lookout for dwellings of all sorts. If you've come across any curious or eccentric homes, feel free to send them along.

  5. Animated short film, Royal College of Art, London, 2009

    Dictaphone Parcel is an animation based on a sound recorded with a dictaphone travelling secretly inside a parcel. As the hidden recorder travels through the global mail system, from London to Helsinki, it captures the unexpected. We hear a mixture of abstract sounds, various types of transport and even discussions between the mail workers. The animation visualizes this journey by creating an imaginary documentary.

    Dictaphone Parcel was awarded the Passion Pictures Prize in London, in February 2010.
