Julian Cope and why I’m re-inventing myself

23Dec09

In a BBC Two television programme, The Modern Antiquarian [2000], Julian Cope states that to re-energise oneself and ones creativity it was important to ‘serve a new apprenticeship every five years’.  This idea struck a chord with me as I searched for creative fulfillment, something I felt was lacking in my role as a television director because of the fast-paced demands of  television production.  

I have always engaged with some form of textile design. The film installations I produced during my degree used fabric as the structure which I used to define spaces.  More recently I’ve been making felt sculptures and knitting accessories. This MA project is about the journey I’m taking from film-maker to designer.  It’s about broadcasting my ideas but in a different way.
