Lead Digital Artist, Commonwealth Games XX
Web development and photography to creatively document Festival 2014 production, ENDURANCE.
My role saw me use digital media to creatively document the participants’ experiences in Festival 2014 production, ENDURANCE. I presented these materials (including videos, images, interviews, and music) through the creation of a new website and exhibition at The Arches, Glasgow.
"This powerful production by A Moment’s Peace and The Women’s Creative Company in Co-Production with The Arches, was presented as part of Festival 2014, the groundbreaking cultural programme that surrounded the Commonwealth Games in Glasgow."

Enheduanna was part of Polina Zioga’s PhD research at the Glasgow School of Art. The performance ran at the CCA, Glasgow in July 2015.
Multi-disciplinary piece involving sound, image and dance, created for ‘The Heavenly View‘ at the 2014 Edinburgh Festival Fringe.
"This new multimedia work by RCS composers Alex Mackay and Matt Zurowski, in collaboration with video artist Alexander Horowitz, explores the relevance of archive materials to 21st Century culture. Combining recordings of Mahler’s 4th Symphony, found videotapes, and newly-made audiovisual material, Active Archive aims to present these artefacts in a new light."
The performance (in which three other performances featured alongside ‘Active Archive’) was the culmination of a collaborative process between artists from the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland, University of Edinburgh and children from primary schools in Edinburgh. Choreographers worked with the children exploring the themes of heaven and hell as found in Gustav Mahler’s Symphony No. 4, and used the material generated during these sessions to create new dance pieces with dancers from Moray House, Edinburgh. Composers and visual artists created new works responding to these same themes, which were then brought together with choreography to produce the final performances.
The pieces were performed at the 2014 Edinburgh Festival Fringe, and then again in November 2014 for the children involved in the initial process.
