Re-modelled – "Lines Of Bees"

April 30, 2010 | By |

Last week I presented a AV set with Tom Rea Smith as for the opening night of MOVES10 at the Bluecoat. Most of my set was created using dynamic patches in Isadora, mixing live camera and video feedback, but for this section I decided instead to plunder an old project, The Model City, for material and give myself a breather in the set. The track ‘Lines of Bees’ is presented simply with the Liverpool One section of the film.

Where Do You Go?

July 10, 2009 | By | No Comments

As part of the Make Your Own Liverpool project for NML back in May, me and John asked young people to begin adding places to the model of Liverpool. What emerged was a cityscape abundant in McDonalds restaurants and Primarks, but no Liver Building.

The Model of Clayton Square

October 21, 2008 | By | No Comments

The Model of Clayton Square 
The Model of Clayton Square is the last remaining architectural model of Clayton Square Shopping Centre. One of three models built in the early 1980’s, this model was salvaged from a skip by Bren O’Callaghan when the manager of the centre let builders lash them while he had his office refurbished. I rebuilt the model from the leftover parts, including some of the lead figures from the other two models, and filmed it as part of making ‘The Model City’. Once finished, the model became home to a large female house spider for a number of months before she died.
