Feel Good Friday

As we go through our lives day by day a lot can happen and pass us by. lately I've got into a habit of reflecting on what I've done. Time is short and although 80 - 90 years may seem like a lifetime when I think that the universe is billions of years old, a lifetime will pass us by.

I Am Scared - an experiment in VR/360

Late last year I was fortunate to be awarded a Creative Wales Award from the Arts Council Wales.

As a part of my award I proposed to make three artistic responses throughout the year, creating something that is inspired by what I have learnt up to that point.

I have just spent a week creating the first response, A VR/360 video…

Feel Good Friday

Feel Good Friday

This weeks Feel Good is on the theme of mistakes.
