about

In August of 2016 I was invited to Sweden to prepare a piece for the Transition show which was to feature the Tiny Portraits series. I stayed in the very small house owned by Lina Sofia Lundin located on the outskirts of the town of Falun. In this time my days consisted of recording trips to the forest, which was filled with blue berries, moss and the smell of pine, and to the nearby water lily pond. I also became obsessed with trying to photograph the water lilies in all their sun dappled glory from underwater. I was very tired during my time in Sweden as I had recently moved cities from Belfast to London, and although usually I am quite a delicate sleeper, Lina's forest was so nice and sunny, I found myself often napping on beds of moss while undertaking recording. In some of these naps my dreams would combine my activities into a sun drenched extravaganza of water lilies, moss, sun and blue berries. This piece is an attempt to soundtrack one such dream.
