Kirin was a project done in collaboration with the Point Blank University in London. For the project I worked with the musician Halina Rice to create visuals for her single Kirin. The music video was screened at Stour Space during the music and arts event hosted there called Night School. Stour Space is a abandoned building turned multi-functional creative venue. The music video is a visual representation of Halina’s Glitch Music mixed with drum beats. The project was an exploration of how illustration and animation can be utilised for the music industry.

The animated moving image project Metamorphosis is based around the work of Franz Kafka. The project began as an inspection into the state of waking in which Kafka often found himself during his sleepless nights of writing. The moving image project is a visualisation of the transformation of Gregor from a man into an insect. Furthermore the moving image project is an account of the psychological state expressed through the metaphor of insect Gregor in Metamorphosis. The physical transformation of Gregor into an insect parallels the character’s personal strife making it tangible in the immediate sense. The animated insect legs (the only representation of the insect in the video) moving the actor around is indicative of its ability to physically alter the character. This alteration is chosen to be depicted as an external force as the prolonged experience of invalidation that is paramount to Kafka's work often resembles a psychological state that feels altogether external.

This is a conceptual video created to depict a person as he is having experiences of delusions. A delusion often can be found entangled with concrete belief's for a person. The person may attach many truthful facts onto one irrational idea which proves his entire reasoning unsound. Often the experience of this delusion leaves the person in a state wherein his beliefs cloud his rational self. The purpose of this video is to illustrate one such event by linking it to imagery that depict some of the irrational fears and beliefs of the individual.
