I've revisited and supervised an edit of In Mercy For A Trespass. This is a short film that will be released in 2014. It's about the first stage of a Cultural Olympiad project at Manor Farm in Ruislip, Hillingdon and culminated in Ea Eard (the title for the redesigned project). It's about the artists and community involved in building a ceramic installation on the 11th century motte and bailey site. A manorial court operated on the site and dispensed justice to the community for their various sins including trespassing on the Lords's land. In 2012 another form of "trespass" took place as Elinor Brass, Emily Orley, Fabiola Knowles and Constantine Gras built a contemporary installation on the listed heritage site, evoking the history of the past and connecting with the environmental setting and the theme of water.
