Over the past two years I’ve been doing an MA at the Netherlands Film Academy. It’s been an incredible opportunity to ask questions, experiment and build a body of research.
I’ll be ‘opening’ up my research during an Artistic Research festival at the EYE museum Amsterdam.
There will be a number of presentations and live demonstrations of my Mixed Reality installation (in progress) The Chorus – built in the Microsoft HoloLens.
I’ll be exhibiting at the Eye, Amsterdam alongside my colleagues from the AHK Master’s programme. Over the past weeks, working with filmmaker Jyoti Mistry, we’ve made work in response to the Eye institute film archive. The film I’m exhibiting can be watched here.
22 – 23 August 2015, 11 am – 6 pm
Private View Saturday 22 August, 6 – 9 pm
[dis]place brings together three artists – Sophie Dixon, Claire Orme and Mai Spring.
Based in the UK and Finland their practices examine the broadly used notion of ‘Place’. Working across a variety of media the artists open a dialogue which traverses the fragile boundaries between reality and perception, challenging the very concept of stability between ourselves and the landscape around us.
The Private View will include live events. For more information please go to the website at www.dis-place.com

I’m excited that a Portugese language version of Wünschendorf (2014) was included in this exciting project curated by Paola De Ramos.
Exhibition Lar/Home brought together the work of over forty artists from all over the world answering the question ‘what is “home”?’ through several media including painting, sculpture, installation, sound, photography, video, performance, poems and books. The idea came from organizer and curator Paola De Ramos, who after living in a foreign country for some years, started to ask herself about the physical, psychological and sentimental relationship at each place where she lived and people she met. On going back to her home country, she decided to create an exhibition to investigate further the theme of “home”. In her own home, where she lived for ten years, she invited artists to participate in this project and use all rooms as an exhibition space to show their interpretations and trigger a collective reflection of the meaning of home.
