All of my work is about trying to provide the opportunity for people to share their stories.
I have done a project called “lost property office”. And I interviewed about 1,000 people in the end about what they have lost. But not things like a shoe, but things like lost sense of humour, like lost virginity, lost temper. And they would tell me their story and I would write them down and attached it to an object that represented the thing that they have lost and opened a big museum of things that people have lost and people came in and shared the stories about things they had lost and they were funny and sad. I recorded them and there were lots of people talking. And as people came in and heard each others stories they started talking to each other. We first saw Bernadette Russell in a white rabbit costume at the Alice in Wonderland themed story telling night organised by The White Rabbit collective.
