Lumen: School of Light

Dancing with Sirius: lines of light, Lumen: School of Light @ Ugly Duckling, Bermondsey, London 3 – 5 February 2017
Invisible lines made visible through photographs of Sirius, the brightest star, taken on the summit of Cerro Tololo in the Chilean Andes during my artist residency. Following Sirius with handheld camera, random choreographic gestures were drawn in the air creating ephemeral ghost-like threads in the night sky.
Photographic installation of 17 mounted matt black prints on Hahnemuhle photo rag (24 x 30cm & 24 x 60cm) total 150 x 150 cm.

World Youth Congress
Rio de Janeiro, Brazil
June 2012

In June 2012, I participated in the 6th World Youth Congress in Rio de Janeiro as facilitator of the Art in the Making workshop, one of the many activities that took place over the  two weeks.  During the congress, which was organised and run by Peace Child International, over 250 youth from more than 100 countries were engaged in discussions, workshops and action projects, with the focus on issues of sustainable development, youth empowerment and job creation, alongside a diverse cultural and arts programme.
