I am spending my time in the studio to explore brain-injury rehabilitation around language and processing skills. How can using games and design join the dots between words, images and stories to help recovery? 

Before starting a residency, I began with some mini-projects. For example, I designed a set of cards to build connections between landmarks and routes through the city. I also published a website, "The Telewonk". As an artistic process, the site showcases a fictitious collection of events, games, and exhibitions.

My own background lies on both sides of the theatre-fence. As an artist with The Plasticine Men and Mufti Games, I was also a producer. I worked with other companies including Theatre Bristol, Arts Council England, BE Festival and Terrestrial.
