Bird of Dreams is a look at Newport,
a city in South Wales, through the prism of breeding and racing pigeons. Mesmerised by the birds, and by the close emotional bond between man and bird. I began to see flying and keeping pigeons as symbolic, as a way into a remote, transcendental world no longer defined by gravity. Once the birds are released and fly out of sight,  the fancier enters an imaginary world, a part of himself escapes up into the air. I saw this act of escapism mirrored throughout the city. 
This project explores flight -
wherever and whatever it may be.
