What is your involvement at Noisily this year?
Delivering and installing an immersive art installation.
What inspired you to work in events? And who was your greatest inspiration?
I was inspired by the dance temples found at European psytrance festivals over the last 20 years. I was greatly inspired by my time working and living at Boomland in Portugal with the bamboo master craftsman Gerard Minikawa.
Where is your dream place, for your work to be exhibited?
I am already living the dream building dance temples across
the UK and Europe this summer.
What were your first events you worked on and what was the experience like?
The Nomadic Temples were first installed at Boomtown.
Where did you learn your craft? and what are your qualifications?
I worked on large-scale architectural projects in London before gaining experience in bamboo design & construction in California and Portugal. I then worked as the head designer in a bespoke fabrication
workshop before setting up bamboology.
What is your favourite piece that you previously created or worked on?
The Beacon was commissioned by Climate Art and installed at Rye Harbour as part of the Vanishing Seas artist residency.
What excites you about exhibiting at Noisily?
The wonderful dancers will hopefully dance around and in my sculptures. My manifesto and vision is a bombastic alchemy of bamboo and tents. It’s a vision of living loving and dancing lightly on the earth with bamboo and colour.
What are you working on at the moment?
I’m building a tensile outdoor classroom and designing and making a bamboo sculpture while preparing my crew for the 5 festival builds we have coming up.
