In London with Carleen Anderson and Progressive Art film (Part 2)





I’m trying to think of reasons why it took me so long to visit London, a city where some of my closest friends call home. It was always too far, too complicated to apply for a travel visa, too expensive, or too, well…uninspiring. Then it came that we had to work on our new documentary for the Digital Timeless platform which required me to go. And what a trip it turned out to be!



Carleen Anderson and I talked about the inclusion and representation of women in the arts. It was important for me to have this conversation with her because she knows life. Sometimes, knowing what to think is also knowing who and what to ask. In the age of digital misinformation, perspective is perhaps the most significant survival tool for our generation.




Our new project The Space Between Colour will be screened in 2018. Until next time. Much love and keep in touch. T

The journey of Progressive Art





We’ve just concluded two-and-a-half years of the Progressive Art project. Our three-day residency at the Ants space in Johannesburg, South Africa, was a huge success. When we started Phsics Media our goal was to become an incubator where young people from different backgrounds could engage with our content and be inspired by it. Progressive Art is our most successful project since our inception. We're grateful for all our friends who've helped us bring out the best of this story. Not to say we didn't face any hurdles along the way, but we pulled-through until the very end. Part one of the Progressive Art film is now live on our channel.




We're excited to go back to work on our sixth-annual project which is called “The Space Between Colour”. The trailer for it is due to be released later this year. The Progressive Art story matters because it proves that with a little bit of faith, a lot can get done.
