Still from House digital video 2 mins (2017)
This video is based around an image of Talland House in St Ives, Cornwall taken by Leslie Stephens. Talland House is where Virginia Woolf spent her summers as a child and which was the inspiration for her novel, To the Lighthouse. For eighteen months I lived in a house across the road from Talland house. The video overlays images and interpretations of my own memories and experiences of that period combined with elements taken from Woolf's short story, A Haunted House.
