Short biography: 

Working primarily in film, paint and collage James explores narratives spaces. Where occurrences between objects, space and time bring into existence a unseen topography. These landscapes often refer to speculative futures or otherworldly influences.

He investigates these terrains through a site responsive approach in both theoretical and practical mediums. He allows chance encounters and hidden memories to intervene in the process of seeing, thinking and making.

James has worked for clients as varied as The National Trust, the National Portrait Gallery, Film-poem, the Poetry Society, the British Library, the Science Museum, the South West Film and TV archive and the British Museum.
