We would like to extend a very warm winter welcome to Sophie Dixon, our new volunteer. Sophie will be working with us until the end of February.
Sophie’s work has research themes at its heart, and uses writing, drawing, audio and video to articulate the process. She is concerned with questions and the exploration to answer them. Finding the format of finalised, resolved work frustrating, she has become increasingly interested in ways to involve an audience in the process of her work.
Sophie is interested in the way we narrate our lives to make sense of our constantly changing environments. Her most recent film Wünschendorf (2014) explored the process of collective memory and forgetting in relation to the trauma and aftermath of exile. It was the result of over four years of research.
She was recently awarded the CVAN Platform Graduate Award after a group show at the Turner Contemporary. She previously graduated from Kent University with a BA in Fine Art.
Sophie is especially interested in the way Blast Theory experiment with technologies as a method of engaging audiences in creative projects. We’re really looking forward to working with her over the next couple of particularly busy months.
