I am developing new work informed by observation of the Investigatory Powers Act passing through Parliament, March - November 2016. Whilst observing hours and hours of debate in Parliament, I read literature and historical novels Solzhenitsyn, Orwell and Matar and took photographs on a 1960's Cold War Minox spy camera.

I have selected material from the Stasi Film and Video Archive; Berlin, this includes footage and negatives that has been semi destroyed through magnetic and manual sabotage, multi-camera surveillance of hidden protests, just before the 1989 revolution and 1960's MfS training material designed for agents to learn hidden, (in briefcase), camera technique.
