To tie up my year of working with the wonderfull team at MTV I was invited to produce a whole set design for a room at the EMA after party, hosted by BATTY BASS RECORDS for which I am creative director, running it alongside head of the label Hannah Holland.
The theme for the party was outer space which fits perfectly with my whole vision for the world of Batty Bass. Our room was called - 'BATTY BASS - THE GALACTIC GATECRASH'.
I took a team of four, along with myself over to Belfast where we walked into a white space and transformed in in just four days. The dream team comprised of the very talented Luke Embden,
amazing artist and body painter Emma Allen, prop maker and designer extraordinaire Cordelia Weston and my fabulous PA Saskia Wickins.
Tribal mulit-coloured mannequins stood as priestesses along a 18 foot mural of futute talismans and symbols spinning out of control, neon lights lit the room and across every angle of the chess board floor, candy colored TV's fuzzed, plazma globes electrified and neon paint dripped. I even made a secret cinema showing a crazy edit of my favourite 80's and sci fi films like, 'Earth Girls Are Easy', Lawn Mower Man, Flash Gordon and Trancers, edited beautifully by film maker Joe Cohen.
I didn't want to leave, I wanted to live in the space forever!
