Winner ! – 2022 Signature Art Prize – (film and photography category)

For three years in a row, my work has been shortlisted for the Signature Art Prize and screened at the gala event in London. In 2020 Passing Trade was selected, in 2021, Procession was selected and it was third time lucky this year as Terminal was selected for the finalist exhibition and was then chosen as the winning piece in the film and photography category.  It has been quite a year for this film having appeared at numerous film festivals and exhibitions both in the UK and abroad.

Finalist 2022 Signature Art Prize - Terminal

Linear economics and the throwaway society

This is an image from a project I have been working on for some time on linear economics and the throwaway society. The image in this post is a close up of a damaged TV screen that I picked up on eBay. The damage area also captures a moment of acute anguish for the previous owner. The screen would have been part of a production run of many hundreds of thousands of identical units. In a single moment, the accident created something that was unique and one of a kind but also valueless.

Terminal will be appearing at the Leeds International Film Festival in November

Following its success in winning the Zealous digital art prize and screenings at the Flatpack Film Festival in Birmingham and Sea Change in Edinburgh, Terminal is now heading to Yorkshire for the 2021 Leeds International Film Festival in November. Leeds is the largest UK film festival outside of London and selection means the film will qualify for other upcoming events, (watch this space). Tickets for the screening can be purchased online
