A series of three digital films made in part on Orford Ness, Suffolk, a small island which politically resonates through its history of espionage, atomic testing and international communications.

The trilogy – Parabola, Ellipsis and Hyperbola – references a mathematical concept whereby those forms are all obtained by intersecting a “conical surface” with a plane, in turn, referring to an intersection of different narratives, disciplines and ideologies in the work. A fictional text links this signature assemblage, written by Nooshin Farhid and narrated by Ross Mullan.

The work is cinematically presented with screenings at 11.30 / 13.00 / 14.30  / 16.00 during gallery hours.
