All I want is a Tarai-Buné


‘All I want is a Tarai-Buné’ is a series of investigations into the environmental concerns regarding the Tarai-Buné.






Firstly the film questions the bath tub thats a boat, asking questions from an engineer's point of view like ‘how does a flat-bottomed boat propel itself?’ What knowledge you should have before you start making your own, and if you can make your own, should you?




A second film questions knowledge supply chains, how information is passed through different educational systems and if we should in the west should adopt these Eastern apprenticeships.












The final piece from the project resulted in a triptych of images showing the application of fibreglass to a tree. Accompanied by myself doing a
poetry reading. 


Moving a barrel is easy
Becoming weightless
Carried or Rolled
Relieving laden mothers
The equilibrium shifts
The Tarai-Buné goes

Modernity Intercepts

Nothing flows
The coating is a barrier
Stifling the interaction
Between people
And water

My Second Plane



I started building an ultralight plane from aluminium ladders, I built the nose cone, 1/4 of the wing, and made a model of the propellor. It was at this point I realised I needed more material, more ladders. So I set up the ladder Research Observatory. We collect ladders all over the world. Melt them down and turn them into aircraft components, ready to be machined.
