This project opened lots of doors towards possible work with sound and audio. It also opened my research to the conversational aspects of my work. In the future I intend to continue collecting conversations and to work with digital media. I also got a lot of fulfillment from the participatory aspect of the work, and think that it ties with the ethical aspect within my practice. I have also explored other media beyond lens based work, which wouldn’t have been possible without this grant.

Thanks to Sue Gollifer I have been put in contact with Joseph Young, who rans a sound art workshop for MA students, which I was allowed to participate in, and which was in addition to the training and mentoring that I had received this grant for. I reinforced the bonds I had with my partners at Brighton Digital Festival, Photo Fringe and Fabrica Gallery, to ensure a long term working relationship with them, allowing me to plan and develop future collaborations. I am very grateful to ACE for giving me this grant, without which I would have not been able to develop my work to this scale.
