I’ll soon be heading to Seyðisfjörður, Iceland for another to residency adventure. This time exploring the unique isolation and ephemeral qualities of Seyðisfjörður. This small town set around a fjörd has a natural environment that strikes me as defining the architecture of the town as much as man-made built forms. I will delve into this relationship to see how the ephemerality of natural elements effect the inhabitants and their sense of place; is it constant and unmoving? Or, does this place perpetually shift with its environment?

I recently returned from a residency at Arteles Creative Center, Hämeenkyrö, Finland. Surrounded by Silver Birch Forests, Arteles is an environment that allows you to go completely off grid. Here I was able to read a stack of texts that I’ve collected and create new work developing tapestry techniques as a method for contemporary drawing. To see images and read more, click here.
The Northern facade has finally come alive! I've been working with Ramus Illumination over the past 2 years to develop feature lighting for 2 Riverside Quay that activates the Southbank laneways and surrounding buildings. A series of linear LED fixtures subtly trace the interior seams of the North facade, allowing animated sequences of bold geometric graphics to undulate across the facade surface throughout the night. During the working week, a slow sequence breaths monochrome tones across the facade. At the weekend, a lively array of colour (I know, me, colour!) and dynamic pattern ripples into play, reflecting off the surrounding buildings.
