A feel for a good story – Sensory Architecture

15 Feb 2014 / in architecture

Door Into the Dark has found its family. For now we have subsituted our editor for a set designer and our composer for an architect. And a talented pair at that. Felicity Hicks was assitant art designer on Skyfall and is working with us in her downtime till the next Bond. Tabitha Pope launched Recycles […]

This weekend I had my nieces and nephew stay over – three of them aged 6 to 11. They wandered around the house looking for ibeacons off the Calvium app, and amongst the audio there was a little surprise. A binaural recording of someone moving around quite close to you and then wandering away and […]

The Voices in Your Head

  It was 2008 and I was in Mazen’s front room in Damascus. I was having an Arabic lesson and my head was contorted with declensions and tables of verb formula. There were roadworks happening not so far away, as was always the case in this city. A man had climbed up a lamppost and […]

hello 2014. and new artistic hero

09 Jan 2014 / in News

The year of big changes (2013) has broken. 2012 was apocalypse. 2013 = chain reactions firing all over the place. 2014 = actual work. Hopefully something to show for all those leaps into the unknown. Feeling inspired by the appearance of some semblance of a team around May and I for Door Into the Dark. […]

Losing it and the theatre of (nice) surprises

11 Dec 2013 / in News

Its week one at the Pervasive Media Studio where we are burrowing away in a batcave of sorts to bash out the Door into the Dark storyworld.   The question is really. How does it all begin and why would you even be here?   Option One. It’s your lunch break you are walking across […]

In the throes of researching our next online interactive documentary on city planning here in Rio de Janiero. The subject for now is Rocinha, Latin America’s densest favela – with 150,000 people in the space of 2.2km squared. 2015 will make 100 hundred years since the first ex-slaves made the mountains their home – bordering […]

Engineering dialogue

13 Oct 2013 / in News

Today was a Stellar Network Story Innovation day. It was at Blast Theory in Brighton with Matt Adams, in the bat cave where me & May spent those weeks in the Spring (mainly writing on the white board and talking to Ju… and coming up with the core concept behind Door Into The Dark). Matt, […]

The very brilliant people at the Pervasive Media Studio interviewed us a few weeks ago. We thought we’d told too many jokes and persuaded them out of giving us the residency by suggesting that if they didn’t, it wouldn’t matter because we’d set up our own residency in a caravan opposite the Watershed, where we […]

Dig – Daniel Silver exhibition in central London.

05 Oct 2013 / in News

Dig by Daniel Silver is quite close to being brilliant. The ideas appeal to all my sensibilities – Freud, totems, belief systems, archaeology and mind excavation, a lovely crumbling site full of puddles… all quite exciting. But somehow it didn’t move me as much as it could have done. The scupltures were beautiful though. Specially […]
