Dummy Jim (2008)

Dovecot, 10 Infirmary Street, Edinburgh, EH1 1LT

Alt-w awardee Matt Hulse has been commissioned by IC:Innovative Craft to curate a series of events and screenings that will explore, in an open-ended way, a range of possible relationships between craft and the moving image, with a particular emphasis on textiles.

Matt is drawing on almost two decades of practice as a film maker and visual artist, several years as a film educator, and even a few as a printed textile designer. He promises to bring an informed and unique perspective, his aim being to inspire, inform, challenge – and entertain.
