I am developing new work based on observation of the Investigatory Powers Act passing through Parliament; March - November 2016. I have been reading literature and historical novels; Solzhenitsyn, Orwell, Matar and using this as a way to expand and understand my work, whilst observing hours and hours of debate in Parliament.

This year I will select material from the Stasi Film and Video Archive to work with, I will be selecting footage from hidden cameras which do not have any documentation of a person under surveillance. I will look at material where the surveillance has failed and consider the person behind the camera and situation of documentation.
