For the fact that this project got underway I owe a huge debt of gratitude to both my corporate sponsors:
and my individual crowdfund fund pledgers:
Finola and Jon Hepworth
Lawrence Ansell - www.storylineagency.com
I have valued immensely the generosity of all the residents of Danny House, as regards their willingness to welcome me into their apartments and to sit and share stories from their lives with me, and/or to get involved in the processes of making.
Particular thanks go to:
Peter Van Zeller
and to the current owner of Danny House, Mr Richard Burrows, for his willingness to embrace the idea of having me work as Artist-in-Residence in his home. But I would also like to thank Danny and everyone who works/lives at Danny House.
Thanks is also due to:
Ray Sullivan for his beautiful documentation of this collection, in photographs and film (and for his personal support)
Jamie Smart for his graphic art
Sarah Weigel for introducing me to and teaching me Mizuhiki
Veronique Maria for the professional mentoring I’ve received (veroniquemaria.co.uk)
Melanie Hendricks for proposing and pursuing the idea of a film of the project
My mum and to all those others who have encouraged, supported and aided me with the research and the stages of making.
