  3 video works in the Project Space, 28, 29 September and 1 October

Born To Run, 2001/2006, 6 minutes
Born To Run features Alan and Chris - the operators of The Mobile Chef Snack Bar. The Mobile Chef is permanently pitched alongside the A590 motorway, in Cumbria, England. Born To Run investigates the magic of Bruce Springsteen, the fragile nature of friendship, and life by the side of a busy motorway.

Cactasia!, 2003, 11 minutes
CACTASIA! features Gordon Rowley: former president of the British Succulent Society, a Spike Milligan aficionado and cactus lover extraordinaire. Gordon’s life is driven and defined by cacti. CACTASIA! is a tender portrait of a gentle and funny man. The work deals with creative processes and investigates our life with plants, each other and the world around us. CACTASIA! was commissioned by the Eden Project, Cornwall.

Luv is gonna get you someday, 2002/2003, 30 minutes
What happens when nobody recognizes your genius but yourself? What happens when the music career you always dreamed of never really materializes? What happens when you get a publishing deal at 17 but you can’t come up with the goods? What happens when you smoke so much dope that you can’t remember much of the past few decades? What happens when showbusiness is all that you know, even if you’ve only ever been in cover bands? What happens when the plastic surgery operation you have on your face goes horribly wrong? Meet Dave Wilder.
