Lost & Found

Site Specific Interactive Video/Audio Installation

Micro Commission: 2017, Cooke's Studios, Barrow-In-Furness

The installation used the huge network of disused train stations and lines surrounding Barrow-in-Furness as an entry point to explore personal relationships to the town’s past, present and future.

Created using audio interviews conducted with members of the local community (listen below), archival film footage, photographs and interactive projection mapping. The piece took the audience on a journey through the space itself as well as through time, undulating with the many voices and generations of the town, unearthing the impact of Barrow’s transitions throughout recent history on it’s people and imagining the paths for its future through those who know it best.

Commissioned by Signal Film & Media as part of their Lost Stations digital art programme.
