First Commissions inspired by Titanic: create the impossible.

Artist Statement

Solastalgia examines the intergenerational impact of Climate Change, proposing the ‘impossible’ by giving future generations a voice. Through the combined artistic strengths of performance writing, film making and musical composition, this immersive artwork explores our failure to empathise with those separated by time. ‘We are the seeds you will plant in plastic, we are your stagnant future’.
