“Humph”

I created a community-based project that was formed around the influence of the 1940’s Mass Observation works in Bolton, England, by Humphrey spender at Tedder House, Llandudno. The work involved a short film created around the perimeter of the Mass Observation Area. For which is used a bike with 3 cameras giving you a forward backwards and rear perspective. The work was part of Llawn04 in the FreeHaus. I gave participants in the mass observation workshop a map with a boundary in the project. This is shown on the bike. The viewer was asked to walk on the image and engage with the building and the work by walking on it.

I am a visual artist and poet who works within the context of fine art. My work is grounded in documentary, exploring the inner beauty of everyday life through various lens based media. Notions of nostalgia and social commentary are present, but from a definite northern working class perspective. Instinctively I exploring the townscapes of North Wales and the North West, often producing work that reflects the every day minutiae of life.
