Between wind and water is an artist’s film based project that makes a clear connection between Sunderland’s history and its present as a place filled with creativity and ingenuity.
Throughout the development of the project I will be working with Siglion, an organisation that is building part of Sunderland’s future with a keen awareness of its past. Between wind and water will show the big picture. Making use of flying camera drone footage to show the changing landscape from a birds eye view. It is being edited alongside recorded stories that connect Sunderland’s past and present during a period of change. ‘Between wind and water’ is a unique journey down the Wear that shows us how history flows from the future to the past.
The second major part of this project is the presentation of this work as a drive in cinematic experience. Sites are being researched and work has begun to develop a plan for its safe delivery with an eye on recording its impact and building a team to create meaningful legacy activity.
The project came about as a result of a my participation in Sunderland 10 x 10 as Artist in residence working with Siglion. It is also supported by Creative FUSE and I am really grateful to Sunderland Maritime Heritage Museum and Sunderland Shorts, short film festival for their support throughout. This is an Arts Council England Funded Project.
