My work this year is themed on transition, in between states and processes associated with loss, mourning and reinvention. My projects have explored Japanese ideas and practices such as Ikebana and Zen gardens. My initial project combined animation and an installation to explore the serendipity of transitional states. The major project is sited in the remains of Brighton pier, a building famous for being lost, multiple times an existing in states of transition for long periods. It draws on ideas from winter festivals, seasonal cycles and rebirth.
