My Mind to Me a Kingdom Is

My Mind to Me a Kingdom Is is part invention and part document. It is an exploration of the artist’s process, an unravelling of the self-imposed and instinctual constrictions within which art can be created, and in return the art’s healing nature for its inventor. The piece, employing 16mm moving image film and 35mm, paints a portrait of fabricated rules and regulations as a form of artistic pressure and emotional fortress. A man secluded in the Suffolk countryside, conjures his own world, a courageous Prospero conjuring boundaries so that art can flourish while the earth’s emotional weather doesn’t blow a storm and overwhelm us all.
