There's a futility to her calling out a warning that no one can hear - and I like that she does it anyway - there is a kindness from the periphery.</p><p> </p><div>I was interested in using Kate Bush's satellite perspective of the earth as a way to select and sort through appropriated imagery of space travel from the internet. I then re-imagined and reconfigured these images into a series of photo-tapestries. </div><div> </div><div> </div><div> </div>

I took them home and started projecting them onto my living roon wall at night - and began a ritual of armchair travelling out to (a 1980's visual record of) space.</p><p> </p><p>I collaborated with musician Jaytee Hazard to create the soundscape (and it's best listened to with earphones).</p><p> </p><div>This discovery also led to me starting a side-club in the town I moved to.
