Passages header

The Passages project is now complete.

Passages was a performance project created as part of my research into various aspects of theatre lighting processes. The performance explored the life and work of the German-Jewish writer and critic Walter Benjamin.

Further information, including an archive of the original project website, can be found at

‘The Operator Connects’, an online mixed media essay that describes aspects of the research, can be found here.
