just outside the window (2012)
just outside the window was commissioned by the sensory trust in 2012 as part of the dementia uncovered initiative.
the commission was for a presentational work (i.e. people sit in rows and watch it) but I wanted to make something that would also sit happily in a gallery context or as an element of an installation.
the poem on which the film is based was written by barbara trehair of trevarna nursing home in st austell, working with the poet karen hayes.
it's obvious this tiny film was made with the assistance of many women and their voices, eyes and contributions are very much appreciated. thanks to liz, sara, anna, ann, sue, catherine, janet, pat, denise, fay, nikki, gen, barbara, melissa, aimee, lynn, trisha, rachel, maud, jane, joan, clara and cecily.
