Ray's Birds (7 min, 16mm, 2010)
Ray Lowden keeps seventy-two large birds of prey, five deer and some wallabies at his place in Northumberland. The film is a little homage to his variously coy, imperious, curious, stubborn and comic raptor menagerie.
Immortal, Suspended (6 min, HD video, 2013)
The idea of suspension is evoked on shifting registers â€“ as levitation, cessation, preservation, and suspense â€“ and located in sites whose identities slip as we track through a space within a space.
Hacked Circuit (15 min, HD video, 2014)
A single-shot, choreographed portrait of the Foley process, revealing multiple layers of fabrication and imposition. The scene being foleyed is the final sequence from The Conversation, where Gene Hackman's character Harry Caul tears apart his room searching for a â€˜bugâ€™ that he suspects has been covertly planted.Â
Optimism (15 min, Super 8 film, 2018)
Cancan dancers, curlers, ore smelters, former city officials and a curious cliff-side mirrored disc congregate to form a town portrait. Shot on location in Dawson City, Yukon Territory.
