For the past couple of months I've been in residence as an "Emerging Siren." Part of the Siren Poets project from the incredible Cape Farewell. Alongside fellow South West poets Liv Torc, Pete the Temp & Shagufta Iqbal, I've been making work that responds to COVID-19 and the climate emergency.

Tackling the climate crisis would take some doing, so I decided to concentrate on the small matter of plastic pollution. Here's some stuff I made.

I enlisted the help of my long suffering music pal Hal Kelly to make a show which we performed live on Facebook from Cape Farewell's Dorset Headquarters. We recorded the audio and set it to a video from visual artist James McColl. Watch it above.
