Books

Exploratory, experimental, collaborative.

AMBruno projects provide a spur to explore a specific theme, to which I bring my own ideas and interests. My approach to making books is exploratory; it enables me to experiment with new approaches, printmaking and learn new skills, and collaborate with other artists.

Joanna Hill

I work in moving image, but what I convey is often a sense of stillness. It is my intention to slow or still time, to play with time sway, to be in the present, immersed in each image in a kind of 'intensive seeing'.

I film food, objects, small gestures, like still life paintings, the material base of life that is familiar but constantly overlooked. Through a narrow or focused vision, a blank or empty background I try to create a space for projection, for thoughts, memories, dreams and desire.
