What On Earth is a series of short films which look at the state of the species: at some of the pressures on our planet, issues we face now and futures we may see as a consequence of the way we live today.
Supported by the National Lottery through Arts Council England and by the Calouste Gulbenkian Foundation.
straybird – Lucy Cash and Becky Edmunds – have created the opening film for the State Of The Arts conference 2012. This year SOTA is called ‘Artists Shaping The World’ and for the film, Lucy and Becky had a series of conversations with a range of artists about what matters to them about their practice as well as why art might be vital in the times we’re living in. http://www.artscouncil.org.uk/news/arts-council-news/state-arts-2012-watch-online/
A DVD of moving image works by Lucy Cash and Goat Island is now available to order.
The DVD contains four moving image works: it’s aching like birds; Dark; a split-screen version of Daynightly They re-school you The Bears-Polka and a split-screen version of A Last, A Quartet.

Sheltering The Night is my new digital moving image work commissioned as part of SLICE, (http://otherasias.webnode.com /currents/current-6-building-blocs/slice/) a long distance collaborative project between artists in Lahore, Pakistan and London, UK. It will be exhibited in September 2011 at Rich Mix and Whitechapel Idea Store in London, and at Zahoor ul Akhlaq Gallery, Lahore.
SLICE invited the London artists to make a work responding to a particular point on a line that makes a mile-long slice through London. The slice travels from Liverpool Street station to Whitechapel. I chose to respond to The Providence Row Night Shelter – one of the first night shelters for the homeless (set up in the 1860′s) and now home to students at LSE.

Artsadmin have just announced that they are holding a launch for What on Earth, which is a new series of short films by artists considering the future of the planet.
The screening is on Monday 13th June.
My film is called Einstein and The Honey Bee:
The honey bee is a much loved insect that has inspired and provoked us humans in equal measure. Einstein and the Honey Bee takes a sideways look at the honeybee and what it means to us, discovering that there are some things that science just can’t predict…. The film, echoing the labour of the honey bee, has been created using hand-drawn animations by Thomas Knowler and was shot on S16mm film and digital stills camera.
Here’s a link to the event which is free – but booking is required. http://www.artsadmin.co.uk/events/2895

Conversation Piece #1
An exchange of place. Two (new) view points. An exchange of ideas
This is a new video work, currently showing here: www.siobhandavies.com/studios/events/current/still-moving.html Until the 9th April 2011
This website looks like the old one, but is actually a new version with some very useful hidden assets -
the main one being that I can now update it myself without The Interested Reader having to update it for me.
Like any overhaul, it’s taking time. And my archive of work from my old site has not yet completed its journey from old to new…
In All Works, you’ll see some of my film work, but you won’t see any performance work or info about writing or workshops etc. While the archive is in transit please email me if you’d like any further information: firstname.lastname@example.org
