As the mind turns
Sometimes the waves create beauty and harmony
Sometimes they are chaotic, messy, ugly
Sometimes, just dull
But they keep on turning making thier mesh
in our heads.
This installation combines:
Video with sound
The video represents the activity of life that generates thoughts, emotions, doubts, excitement, fear… And like life and mind, it includes some unexpected interruptions such as memories and old fears.
The dancers and sound are from The Verdiales Festival, an annual local folk competition in Málaga, December 2021.
I took the photo of the bus stop on Bow Road E3 during times of physical distancing.
The photo of "the lady in the box" is a memory of my grandmother, long gone, in childhood Scotland, serving endless cakes and biscuits.
Moving class and string
This represents the continual turning of the mind, the interplay between the different thought and emotions that run through us endlessly
Still images - ink on board
These pieces are snapshots of mental states, either single minds or the interplay between minds. Here, the flow of the colour through the water or coffee base is a representation of the way thoughts move through the mind.
