Over The Horizon is a new video installation piece that takes its name from the failed radar system developed on Orford Ness during the Cold War. The building that housed it and its ariel field are now used to broadcast the BBC World Service to Europe. The film revisits the site where Cobra Mist was made and explores through photographs and sound the memory of a place, the remnants of history and evidence of stories true or rumoured. It was installed at Snape Maltings in Suffolk for SNAP 2012 during The Aldeburgh Festival from June 8th - 24th 2012 along with a photograph, Rex, 2012. http://www.snapaldeburgh.co.uk/ and is installed at Tulca 2012 What Became of the People We Used to Be, November 9 - 23, Galway, Ireland
