Within and Without Finished!

Saturday, October 29th, 2016

So for years now I have been working on an album Within and Without – it is a mix of poetry, music and art. The small is within the big and big within the small and as our society swirls in interlocking patterns so what is without is within and what’s within can change what […]

Video of Love: A Stranger Dream

Thursday, September 8th, 2016

This is the arts video I made of my non-lineal visual poem Love: A Stranger Dream. It is 18 minutes long to warn you before you embark on the watching odyssey. I created felt backdrops, learnt to play two new instruments and did a hell of a lot of fuffing and yack shaving to get […]
