High Street Multiverse

January 2022 launch

Digital public art project with The Stove Network

I was selected as one of six emerging writers in Dumfries and Galloway to craft stories which will be placed around the centre of Dumfries. Audio recordings of the stories will be embedded in a series of specially designed QR light sculptures which will immerse listeners into new imaginative worlds.

As part of this project I will be participating in workshops led by Des Dillon, Karen Campbell and Karl Drinkwater.

The project is due to be completed in Jan 2022, and I'm very excited to see what this innovative collaboration will produce.

Staying Alive

"...we hope that amongst the poetry and prose you hold in your hand you will find mental and emotional nourishment, that there are things here to comfort the disturbed and disturb the comfortable. Pieces such as Carolyn Hashimoto's interlingual meditation on grannies, maggots and death..."

The Call of the Cellophane Crane

"Did you wake up this morning with nothing to do but kill time? What if you woke tomorrow and made a paper crane? A paper crane made from cellophane. This may be perplexing. But it’s not a child’s game. Someone... someone..."
