Surface Tension

A journalist passes through a flooded city by boat, reporting on the devastating effects of a major flood – it’s an image that you'll most likely recognise from the news. Trees, electricity poles and roofs stick out above the surface while cars and personal belongings float along along and the city’s residents have (hopefully) fled. It’s an intense, disruptive kind of disaster that's becoming more and more common.

For the 8th Edition of the Amsterdam Light Festival, Tom Biddulph and I created the artwork ‘Surface Tension’ in response to the theme Disrupt. Transorming a part of Amsterdam’s famous canal into a drowned city street; a warning to viewers about global rising water levels and devastating flooding around the world.

Night Vision

“The medium is the message” coined by Marshall McLuhan was the theme for the 7th Edition of the Amsterdam Light Festival.  Together with Tom Biddulph we created our light sculpture ‘Night Vision’.

Over millions of years our eyes have become incredibly specialised instruments; a window through which light is converted into information, allowing us to ‘see’ anything and everything before us. As boats pass through Night Vision, it as is if they themselves are a beam of light entering the eye through the pupil.
