'Overthrows' is supported by Open Fund Creative Scotland. The project looks into how experience of touch and physical encounter is negotiated through different media. The funding will support the development of a series of sculptural objects, a new video work and physical performance. The project's mentor is Prof. Patricia Allmer.

March /April 2022
Spent last couple months designing and started making my soft sculptures for the future short film. Sewing is taking much longer than I anticipated and borrowed sewing machine broke down. I had to buy a new and heavy duty one so it can take volume of the work. Timeline had to get revised and adjusted.
First mentorship session with Prof. Patricia Allmer - inspiring and stimulating, lots of homework.
