Two short videos filmed at Empty Shop studios open work space this week

It was good to be able to hire  a studio space for a few hours to work in. The space for hire  is lovely and also the light in the building is great and Carlo was really welcoming. The building has really come on since I first saw it and Carlo and Nick have done great things with setting it up and transforming a building that has lain empty for 10 years into an exciting and vibrant arts facility.

I tried to move the ideas in the pieces on in terms of scale and begin to think about creating movement through the pieces. Also to think about how things might work for a live cast.

Empty Shop is in a busy part of Durham City and I was aware of the constant movement of passers by outside which provided a contrast of movement and intention to the balancing pieces I was trying out.

The  contrast  of the two environments and their terms of intention and engagement is something I would like to consider building in to further pieces.
