Growing up I was fascinated by the woodlice that lived under the stones in our back garden. I was intrigued by the monotony of their lives spent in darkness for millions of years, largely unseen and unnoticed. Though few would bother to give them a moment’s thought, nevertheless each of these tiny creatures resides at the epicentre of its own universe. I still find apparently boring things inspiring and conversely am mostly unimpressed by the spectacular. This tendency continues to inform and influence the content of my animated films, which celebrate the trivial details of everyday life such as walking the dog, traveling to work or simply staring at the carpet. Insignificant as they may seem, the obscure interludes that fill the spaces between more memorable events are what make up the fabric of our lives and surely deserve closer inspection.
