LOST is a 24 hour Interactive Live Art and Music Festival set in a secret woodland 1 hour north of London.

 

I manage all things creative, from designing the website and online content, to curating all of the installations and the decoration.

LOST is the perfect setting to display my own artwork.

PLEASE DO NOT NOT TOUCH

Founder & Creative Director

2013 - Present

Please do not not touch is redefining the gallery experience. Rules are being broken to introduce a fresh, exciting take on what should be expected of art and exhibitions. Expect a fun, less exclusive, less intimidating atmosphere, where spectators become participants, and participants become artists.

 

I set up Please do not not touch when I graduated from Edinburgh College of Art and moved to London. Now, we've had two sold out parties (LOST TEASER [CHAPTER I] and LOST TEASER [CHAPTER II]) and one sold out festival (LOST).

MY DEGREE SHOW

Edinburgh College of Art 

June 2013

- - - 

For my degree show piece, I challenged the idea of what people are 'allowed to do' in galleries. I encouraged spectators to become participants. 

I built a bedroom and painted all of the furniture and items inside it white, as well as myself. This was my blank canvas. I then invited participants to take a shotglass of powdered paint and decorate their surroundings. On the shelf of shotglasses, I printed the instruction 'Please do not not touch' to force participants to stop and think about what they were 'supposed to do'.

MY COLLEGE WORK

Edinburgh College of Art 

2009 - 2013

- - - 

I studied Fine Art at ECA, specialising in Painting. Over the four years, my work evolved from traditional portrait painting on canvas, alone; to body painting my subjects in a bedroom setting, just the two of us; to encouraging spectators to paint on my body, in front of an audience. I found (and still find) the level of intimacy fascinating, which led me to my degree show piece. 

 

Here are some of the Live Art Events I organised in my third and fourth year of art school...
