About the Artist.

James Suret

James Suret is a UK based artist specialising in glass, materials and physical installations.

With many avenues of inspiration what has really caught his attention is the human psyche, how we function and what provokes such intense emotional reactions.

Trying to encapsulate or provoke these reactions is now his major source of drive.

About the Film.

The film was shot specifically for the New Designers showcase in London.

As it wasn't possible to take the full installation, the film was to give the artist a platform to explain his ideas, and also to show some of the physical space within 'dasein'.

The mood and tone of the film tries to capture some of the feelings invoked when travelling through the installation and viewing the projected glass.
