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 which shared the same view of Godrevy Lighthouse. The video overlays images and interpretations of my own memories and experiences of that period combined with elements taken from Woolf's writing.
