Philippa’s practice stems from an exploration and development into experimental analogue filmmaking. Initially, using techniques formed during printmaking and exposure with a focus centered around the process of making. Circulating around philosophical notions of space and time, Philippa has projected, both literally and psychologically the idea of reliving, or repeating moments that in reality can never truly be repeated. This has been realised in various experiments working directly onto 16mm film. These experimental works have created optical sound films which has lead to further exploration between analogue and digital sounds created through various processes. Recently, Philippa’s practice has focused more on projecting just simply the moment of creation which has began an interesting journey into performance.
Alongside Philippa’s practice she started a DIY Gallery in 2015, Threads, which has seen multiple residencies, exhibitions, screenings and critiques across Kent. Recently, Threads curated Strangelove Festival, a time based arts festival, returning in March 2018. In 2016 Philippa started sessional lecturing professional practice at Canterbury Christ Church University. During 2017 Philippa project managed one of the Folkestone Triennial 2017 commissions.
