PI (2014)

P.I explores the notion of pure imagination by taking inspiration from and exploring the words of the song Pure Imagination, written by Leslie Bricusse and Anthony Newley for the 1971 film Willy Wonka & the Chocolate Factory. 

The P.I video series were filmed from the scrolling image of the PDF version of P.I.There are many versions of PI. This one happens to be blurred. It is with hope that the blurring of the text allows space for the individual to become lost in the hypnotic rhythm of the flowing text and therefore their own imaginations. Video part of a combined work for exhibition TRANSLATIONS at Generator Project, Dundee.


Short film 'Everywhere but There' as part of a collaboration 'Convergence'  with Civic Soup's LONGCUTS for Architecture Fringe 2017. 

Down on the old Railway network of Restalrig in Leith, Edinburgh, the folks of Civic Soup made a series of pop up interventions occur over the weekend of 8th and 9th of July, 2017. 

Created as a direct response to the site and pathway still in use today, opening up conversations about how we traverse space and navigate, the relevance of historical movement, activity and technology. Focusing on reflection of how we can explore our freedoms and limitations in new ways and how this affects how we react to our environment around us and how our environment reacts to us.  

The film was projected into an old cabinet temporarily housing a pop up archive, on site under one of the bridges on the pathway.

The film shows the navigator of google maps unable to reach the cycle path where the film was projected. Its audio accompaniment is borrowed from a youtube video explaining orientation in mathematical linguists.
