The Nightwatchman and The Wall of Sound, below, 2007

After finishing my degree at Central St. Martins I began working as a security guard at a posh block of flats in central London. Occasionally working night shifts, my mind would begin to wonder about all the scenarios that could occur and be recorded on the CCTV monitors.

I also encountered episodes of Hollyoaks that came with sign language interpretations at the bottom of the screen, something that was particular to night time viewing. Apart from being fascinated by the expressiveness of the body as a tool for communicating, I also thought how unfair it was that deaf people could only enjoy these programmes during unsociable hours. After creating a series of drawings, I made a page of monoprints to hightlight this absurd injustice.
