Shimmering City

Shimmering City is the lead single from Hiroshima EP, the first of four projects documenting travels in Japan.

The track diarises a return to Hiroshima in 2018, following the first visit two years earlier. The weather was gorgeous, and there was blossom on the trees.

Site Nonsite

Site Nonsite is a project researching and documenting a connection to place. The site is the source, a place rich with scattered information and experiences; the nonsite is the resulting document, a multimedia abstraction of that place. (These guiding thoughts are adapted from land artist Robert Smithson’s 1968 Theory of Non-Sites .)
