I’ve been working on a few personal projects that have National Identity as a running theme. They’re works in progress. Who’s personal work ever gets finished?

The environment for this first one is a grimy Northern town built from cardboard railway models. The targets and flags allude to collective and individual conflicts.

In Protecting Our Way of Life I’m using video loops of fences and walls to make a border, physically and metaphorically, around footage of Britain and the British.

The grids are influenced by those used in Gilbert & George’s Dirty Words series from the 1970’s. As the piece progresses the “walls” become less substantial and the subject of the video becomes less apposite of British self image.

This project mimics some “silent era” film techniques. The grimy northern town has transmuted into a fairground.
