Dove's mesmerising kaledoscopic animations investigate the complex relationship between colour and sounds. Much of her work takes the form of a visual and audio representation of an idea, emotion or perception using animation to reduce experience to its basic state. Brightly coloured amorphous shapes dance to hypnotic music - dividing, multiplying and dissolving. Influences include the experimental filmmaker Len Lye1 as well as modern masters such as wassily Kandinsky with his intuitive use of colour and Pail Klee2 who believed that a perfect geometry could be found in the natural world.

20k: Twenty km, just over twelve miles.

This is my website The 'Gerald that I built in a frenzy of excitement when I first came to Folkestone sometime in '04. I'd been a frequent visitor for a few years before that but I am technically one of those Down From Londons you get now. The site was updated more frequently with a calendar of events and voting for favourite places + things, + I know it was a useful reference for those who were moving to the area. Now I've moved out of Folkestone again (though only a couple of miles) it doesn't get as much love as it used to. Ironic really as The town is becoming the exciting place we always thought it was just about to. My name is not Gerald by the way, this comes from a fake newspaper in an episode of The Day Today or something, the Portsmouth Gerald, and how there is a local paper here called the Folkestone Herald. Puns like this are great aren't they? Do contact me if you have anything to contribute, email anythign @ this domain, or try @folkestone or @pauly on the twitter.
