Circa 20:20 at Piccadilly Circus in London is an opportunity for me to produce a public, visual presentation related to my past. I will present 30 parts, each with a duration of 120 seconds during the month of October. Together, the clips form a 60-minute long program, an episodic, visual narrative consisting of images, videos, sound, and poetry relating to my art and social and political activism. It will be a multi-layered magazine for public viewing both on the street and online.
The project begins from the year I was born through to the current, unceasing pandemic threaten- ing the human condition globally. All visual material is produced by my studio. There will be a selection of quotes taken from my own writing, as well as from other writers and poets. We will provide a visual feast with a strong message for the public.
