This video was prepared in a motion capture studio by Jens Meisner from my gestures made while describing a story from the Trevisa Project. The aggregated drawing in light made by my remembering body, became, as I played it back, less important than two shadow figures described by the negative spaces in the animation. They reminded me of being a child, lying in my winter bedroom, watching the light flicker under the door as my parents walked quietly to and fro on the landing.
While the text describes a long-distance relationship between Trevisa and the anchoress Jools the Solitary, both of whom were born in 1342, the piece also holds memories of my own parents and their increasingly frail interdependency
the music lullee lulla lullay was arranged by Philip Stopford and recorded in Truro Cathedral with the cathedral choir
