Return To A Place Of Remembered Beauty
Through Gardens Overgrown

Cathedral Oceans

"These images have been made from photographs and found objects collected over a period of around thirty years on journeys through Britain, USA and Europe. They are places and things which are overlooked, forgotten, neglected. Layers of memory made from material and images from industrial cities and over grown gardens. Ruins from Rome to the east end of London. Abandoned places from Manchester factories to prehistoric settlements in the south of France. Litter from derelict buildings and streets from New York to Glasgow.

The visual layers are made to filter slowly through each other. This creates a constantly shifting surface. A sort of moving, digital stained glass window. These images are intended to be combined with the music and to be projected - to cinematic dimensions - on to screen or directly onto walls and surfaces of modern and ancient buildings."
