Interior of others

I made this film more than 3 years ago about a house and it’s interior.

Eastend House, Thankerton.

The images in this film of Eastend House  are not my own. They have been taken by others as I have never entered this house. I hope that the photographers may forgive me for ‘stealing’ their images.

The title “Interior of others” refers to the quotes which carry this film. The quotes are not mine, but come from writers whose books (interiors) I have read. I have again ‘stolen’ them.

The writers include: A. S Byatt, A L Kennedy, Andrew Greig, John Berger, Anton Chekhov, Anthony Dooer, Adam Nicolson, Tomas Transtromer, Ali Smith and Anne Tyler. So many wonderful interiors of others.

It may not be obvious, but this film is an 'attack' on disembodied science. An evidenced-based approach to wellbeing needs to consider mind, body, brain and the social world we walk through in both time and space: together not divided [please see my poem below]
