Karen & Nina at NW Cambridge, Nov. 2015

Prospect-a-way

We're quietly getting on with a new project called Prospection, which you can see more about here. It's a 25 year survey of a new area of Cambridge, under development by the University and where our artists residency a few years back took place (and where we built our mudopolis 'Tomorrow, Today').

Working with a mixed team of sociologists, archaeologists and artists we're visiting each year and surveying anything about the place and its inhabitants that takes our fancy. We then put the stuff in a box in the county archives for posterity.Simple!

This week we work once more with the wonderful editor Alice Powell on a short film drawn from our two days filming at the site in November 2015. Expect much high-vis, wind, rain, tea and hard hats....

Big Thanks...

To everyone who's come along to screenings of The Closer We Get lately - Keswick, Zagreb, Washington DC, New York City - and to all the hosts and organisers too, including the British Council in Washington DC, who funded my trip out there and to Janice and Michael Kaplan, my hosts.

You can sign up for updates on the film's forthcoming screenings and its digital release here.
