      I thought ‘50’ would be a fitting successor to my short ‘100’. Especially since I was about to turn 50 myself. I wanted to portray 50 people of 50 years old who would say the word ‘50’. I roamed the streets, as I did with ‘100’, to film people I thought were 50, but I soon realized finding them ‘in the wild’ would probably take me into my sixties. So I started to look in my own circle of friends and acquaintances. My best friends are still the ones I met in elementary school –complemented with friends I met in high school- and I thought it would make this film much more personal if I would portray people I went to school with. From elementary school, 22 people (almost my entire class) are represented in this film, the others are people I went to high school with. All in all, it took me almost 2 years to complete. This film has become a portrait of my generation and for me personally, a rekindling of emotions, friendships, loves. The viewer may see a bunch of middle-aged faces but I am unable to look at us other than the kids we are- and once were. Jeroen Wolf

          The Hoo Peninsula shelters the river Medway, forming a buffer and distinctive territory on the Thames Estuary; the wide ridge at the core of the peninsula is a solid backbone flanked by vast open grazing marshes to the West and the more secluded wetlands of Yantlet Creek to the east. Beyond that, the Isle of Grain seems separate and remote, despite the constant stream of heavy lorries on the A228 to service the industry and container terminal there. It is a large-scale, exposed rural landscape, where domestic, rather than ‘urban’ villages and open farmlands are juxtaposed with expansive coastal marshes and clusters of huge industrial buildings and military ruins. Le Rêve de Newton, filmed on location in the nature reserve of Northward Hill, Cliffe Pools… in what Charles Dickens described as a “dark flat wilderness intersected with mounds and gates, with scattered cattle feeding on it”, is delGado’s poetic reflection on ageing, vulnerability and the changing landscape as well as an exploration of the politics of sport and the body. Working alongside with the writer Pauline St Marie, he has produced a piece in which text & image collaborate to create a narrative dialogue concerning energy & power; health & longevity; disability & ability; death & decay. We see nature, wildlife and old buildings, places abandoned that have fallen into disrepair. The artist described the work as a “journey into a landscape that emanates with the mystery of a story to be unfolded”. In the work the gleam of the lights from a smoky factory punctuate the imminence of dawn; the delicacy of the grass swaying in the wind and the haunting presence of the Grain Tower, the rhythmic seagulls’ flight mesmerize us alongside with the words of a senior cyclist who wanders around the woods and seems to come to what will be his final race.

                  As part of the ESRC Festival of Social Science 2014 on two dark nights in November in Sheffield, huge images of older women appeared on some of the city’s most famous buildings. Kathleen and Eleanor, in big hair and sunglasses, covered the City Hall. Jill’s wrinkles, teeth and grey hair were beamed onto the side of the Town Hall. Shirley, taking off her wig, featured on the side of Central Library in Tudor Square. These images were from the Look At Me! project led by Dr Lorna Warren from the Department of Sociology at the University of Sheffield. The aim of the project was to examine the stereotypical way older women are portrayed in the media, if, indeed they are visible at all. Dr Warren and a team of other researchers explored these issues with women aged from 41–93 across Sheffield who then produced their own images capturing their experiences of ageing. The project featured on BBC Radio Sheffield as passers-by were interviewed by presenter Paulette Edwards to capture their reactions to the images of the women projected onto city centre monuments. A debate was held the next day on the radio between Dr Lorna Warren, Judith Holder (producer of the Grumpy Old Women TV series) and Paulette Edwards to discuss older women’s representation in the media. Dr Warren’s public engagement activities in the last few years have taken a trajectory that has seen her Look At Me! project achieve new heights through engagement with bigger and wider audiences.
