Inspired by an abandoned idea of Walt Disney's to build natural history cinemas in zoos, Nature's Nickelodeons is a live cinema experience that will be premiered at Sheffield Doc Fest. I've been with filmmaker and Doctor of GeoHumanities Amy Cutler to re-invent the nature broadcasts through the use of a neural net.

Dare Art Prize

I have been selected as the winner of the 2018-19 DARE Art Prize by Opera North and the University of Leeds’ Cultural Institute. Working with scientists at the University, I will explore the functions of memory and the roles of the left and right sides of the brain, and how their operation might be embodied in a work of art. The project will start summer 2018 and last a year.
