Timothy Davey studied Intermedia Art at the University of Edinburgh and Screenwriting at Tisch School of the Arts in New York City. He recently completed his first feature film ‘Visions Composed’, a work included in his solo exhibition at the Norman Rea Gallery, which explores romanticisms of the internet-age.
In 2011 he co-directed and produced a feature documentary ‘Heal-Face’, which was screened at The 1%ers arts festival Mumbai. He has also written and directed a number short films and music videos.
Mateus Domingos graduated from Loughborough University in 2012 and has since been co-director of Two Queens arts centre, Leicester. He has been involved in the development and production of the Arts Council funded programme of exhibitions at the venue. Domingos has continued to develop his own practice as an artist exploring text and the moving image. The play between media and the opportunity for translation is crucial. A continued interest in the possibilities for education and the role of arts in communities through engagement with new media has directed new experimentation and collaborations, including the publication of several novels, essays and a graphic novel.
Nathan Bissette is a musician currently residing in Aberdeen. He graduated from the Bachelor of Music Degree programme at the University of Aberdeen in 2014 gaining a First Class Honours Degree and the Chris Cadwur Composition Award and is now an active member of Aberdeen SERG (Sound Emporium Research Group). He works as a music tutor, both privately and for Aberdeen SCAT (Scottish Culture and Traditions), performs in numerous ensembles and composes music on a regular basis. He is a founding member of the Leicestershire band Dead Hand.
This city we made films within and
dreams of leaving.
This city we stayed / returned to-
Feeding visions of elsewhere.
This city we know
Like all of us a part-
The city peoples.
The city wears the history of it’s myths.
The city is alive with the dreams of
it’s people, animals, nature.
It is mud and stone and myth.
And still it is possible to exist
alone -private stories from other
cities, a past that reaches tendrils
to the present.
