Red Dagger

A drudge derive through the contemporary and Historical Psychogeography of London, Red dagger follows a young man caught in the current trawl net of Zero Hours contract work. 

Sent on a journey across London between night shifts working menial jobs and long hours late in the new moneyed dark heart of the capital. He unwittingly awakens in the process forgotten ghosts of both London's violent social and economic past whilst also questioning his own position at the bottom of Britain's new Globalized free market food chain.

    MA Contemporary Art Practice, 2017



  • I am an Artist/Filmmaker from Northumberland, working in London graduating from in Moving Image from the RCA in 2017. 

    My working practice traverses the space between Art film and Conventional cinema and Theatre. This involves me undertaking investigations into current social issues such as Class, social inequality, insurrection, and involves me untangling the the threads between historical and contemporary narratives, unpicking and questioning the relationship between the past, present and future through the use of documentary, fiction narrative and installation work.
