Purpose of the residency

During my residency at TOKAS I would like to open myself up to new experiences, meeting people and documenting our conversations. Much of my work is informed by chance encounters and archival research. Whilst in Japan I would like to immerse myself in the improvisation and noise music scene with the intention of collaborating with the people I meet, combining sound and image to create a new experimental animation work. I would also like to take this time as an opportunity to look through footage I have filmed over the last ten years, the discarded off-cuts and out takes that make up my own personal archive.

Plan during the residency
  • Research counter culture within Japan.
  • Meet and collaborate with improvisation/noise musicians from Japan.
  • Experiment with new animation techniques.
  • Visit various anarchist book shops and interview customers and people that work their.
  • Begin work on a new moving image work combining my various research interests.
