published in the 'social art award' book 2020.
‘all the things they never told you’ is an immersive poetry installation, combining composition, haptic visuals, poetry and lighting to create a transformational art experience, incorporating meditation, ritual, and ambient hypnosis. This is thematic in all of my work, as well as notions of transformation, ritual and sanctuary.
First mounted in 2018 in collaboration with Hebden Bridge Arts Festival at Hope Baptist Church, Hebden Bridge. Later mounted at the San Francisco Art Institute, 2019.

"A hot bubble bath for the soul...thank you for reminding me of all these truths" 2018
