Following the residency last year at Centrum; Berlin, I am working on a body of work, which considers the death strip of former East Berlin and Stasi control and surveillance methods.

Lines of Resistance:
Digital Short; 6m22s
Digital composite panoramas x2 taken with a Gigapan. Images size: 5m x 2 metres.

Cushion Timeline: series of 8 digital photographs

As part of this work I am developing a research proposal to access the Stasi Film and Video Archives held in Berlin. This work centres on the spaces and gaps that resonate within the remnants of the death strip or no-mans land and considers states of limbo, of being neither here nor there or in one space or the other. There is an inquiry into the invasion of psychological space, control and sites of political stasis.
