Using a combination of live action and animation this film explores the relationship between the material and the digital and the role of the imagination when walking outside isn’t possible. 

During Lockdown I was, like so many, limited in where I could travel. I was lucky to be able to walk in my garden, and found that, though confined spatially, my imagination was free to wander unbounded. Associations of objects, ideas and memories created a new landscape to explore.

Kate is a Performance Designer whose work is interdisciplinary but united by a concern with human/non-human interactions. A sensibility to the properties and possibilities of materials led to interest in the materiality of the environment and how participants in site-specific work encounter their surroundings. Having completed a Masters in Performance Design at University of Leeds, she is now embarking on a PhD to enquire into the ways that scenography can articulate the diversity of walked experience of place.
