Essential to our company is the fact that we are both practicing artists in our own right and engagement and collaboration with other artists is important as it informs our practice. One of our favorite genres is artists documentaries - as artists ourselves, we understand and appreciate process and development as well as outcomes.
|Transformations, Arts in Sandwell
Transformations was an arts project, which took part in summer 2002 at 12 venues across Sandwell. Young people were invited to collaborate with artists to transform spaces, places and people. The video visits all of the venues and shows preparation, process and outcomes. Participants, artists and organisers all comment and discuss their transformations.
This documentary is an invaluable tool for anyone wishing to run multi art form, innovative arts projects with young people.

to be displayed on a truck, traveling the country. The video accompanies

|Natures Gallery CD ROM, Gallery in the Trees.
Birmingham Museum and Art Gallery Natures Gallery is a unique collection of animations, video and artwork, produced in a series of participatory Multi-Media Workshops.
Based on the theme of a 'Museum and Art Gallery for Animals and Plants', more than 70 participants from all over Birmingham, both old and young, developed and produced ideas for Nature's Gallery. They tell fables of how human presence affects animal life in the Lickey Hills, trying to present the animal's point of view. Through the artwork the participants produced, they tried to imagine what animals and plants would exhibit in Nature's Gallery.
Commissioned by Gallery in the Trees Produced by Digital Media Artist Sabine Gollner. It was exhibited in the Lickey Hills as part of "The View Belongs To Everyone".
