RUNNING HORSE

In 2019 I was commissioned by the Making Ways project in Sheffield to make a short video. I really enjoyed experimenting with the ideas that I had in mind and ended up making six different pieces.

Each of the six uses the same basic components - horse, birds, wallpaper, drawing - to make an image with movement that is designed to loop indefinitely. Each one has a different look and feel - Is it a real horse running through a forest? Is it a dream horse or ghost horse, materialising on an old wall? Has the wallpaper come to life or is it dissolving to reveal something else? Why are the birds frozen when the horse is moving? And what is that fluttering glittery stuff?!

The middle image in the top row was the Making Ways commission. It will be used alongside videos by other artists to celebrate and promote Sheffield’s creative scene.
