“A flower a day” film showing at the Outernet galleries

Outernet galleries

My short film “A flower a day” is on show at the Outernet London digital galleries in June and July, as part of a collaboration with WeTransfer’s WePresent.

Outernet London is located next to the Tottenham Court Road tube station, at the end of Oxford Street, near Centre Point. There are two public (free to visit) galleries, The Now Building and Now Trending. Both feature giant Ultra HD screens capable of delivering amazing audio-visual experiences. Film times can be found on the Outernet free app.

About the film

“A flower a day” is a stop-motion short film with over 500 flower ink drawings, made every morning for my partner over three years. The film portrays the joy of being in a relationship, and highlights the importance of daily commitment that a good relationship requires. Music is an integral part of the film, the drawings being matched with Chopin’s Minute Waltz.

You can watch the film and read more about the process behind it in my “A flower a day” case study.

WePresent collaboration

Many many thanks to Suzanne Tromp and Alex Mattinson from WePresent for including my film in their Outernet programme. It’s wonderful to see my drawings on such a huge scale, but it’s especially a delight to see so many people enjoying the film. I hope the film’s message will stay with them at least for a while.

There are several other great WePresent collaborations on show at Outernet, with artists like Ian Woods, Luciana Demichelis, Cato.ink, Ayange Olarinde, Ashkan Honarvar, Carlin Diaz.
