Shadows is a collaborative piece which combines visuals with sound and poetry.

The idea is based on old autograph albums, which were kept by a stewardess who worked on the transatlantic liners in the 1930’s, signatures – marks left by people who travelled back and forth between Southampton and New York – the famous and the unknown.



Digital images from ‘Book of Shadows’ were deconstructed into their separate layers - each with its own separate timeline – each appearing, fading, recurring. Sea, shadow and signs constantly shift – while interweaving through layers of time and space are signatures – relics from a hidden past, and of the shadowy figures who left their marks behind in the books.
