“Threshold Festival embodies everything that’s rich, diverse & creatively energetic about Liverpool. 10 years ago I began working with the crew to create novel & engaging artworks and I’m happy to be back in 2020 with a work that references climate change and human behaviour”.
My first installation for the inaugural Threshold Festival included 40,000 plastic bags which, at the time, equated to the average number used by one person in their lifetime. Later works included 132,000 plastic knives and forks as well as an anonymous donors entire audio cassette tape collection of over 200 items.
Currently I’m working on a residency that focuses upon Climate Anxiety and Eco Grief within the extraction rich environment of Fort Worth, Texas. As the largest energy-producing and energy-consuming state in the nation, the location provides a rich backdrop to my conversations between The Art Galleries at TCU, the Department of Psychology and the Institute for Environmental Studies. The project will culminate in a programme of socially engaged practice, an installation and a site-responsive Artists’ Film in 2021.
