Transmedia Story Telling

As a little girl we didn’t have TV and so when we visited kids with one I was totally intrigued!

Now with new media capability at my finger tips – I can’t help myself and have to take my art into this world of colour and movement an immersive environment.

Wanting to share this process – for some purpose – I floated the concepts of an immersive ‘Transmedia Story’ to bring the ‘Beach to the Hospital’ – to allow the long term Patients to hear the waves – the call of the sea gulls to help and enable their well being and recovery!

we collaborated with musicians – Elena Kats-Chernin and her ‘Dance of the Paper Umbrellas’ took us to another place – gorgeous music to calm and heal!

Checking the timer the other day on site – I spoke with an old gentleman – quietly drinking his coffee and he informs me ‘….. that he had been to the beach 5 times already that morning ….’ and it was only just on 10am, so I felt we had achieved our goals!!

We are now working on the next round of film – to add variety!!
