"When I saw the Light Night Worcester commission opportunity, I knew I had to go for it – to have the chance to make more video art in such a beautiful city, with its people, for its people – it is the best first step into the arts industry I could have wished for. I am looking forward to working with the Festivals team to produce my next video installation."
