This project began with just one word, wellbeing.

What does wellbeing mean to us as individuals? Is it about feeling physically healthy? Is it about being mentally at peace? What can you do to improve your wellbeing?

These are the types of questions I asked in my investigative interviews. I recorded the interviews and used these audio recordings alongside footage that I filmed in response to my interviewees’ comments to make some films. Initially I combined the sound and video together in one film, but later, elected to separate these audio and visual elements in order that they be better absorbed individually. The result, presented here, is two groups of films, one group featuring still images accompanied by speech; the other, film footage accompanied my musical soundtracks.

These films were compiled on an interactive DVD designed to encourage people to take time out from their busy lives to contemplate their own wellbeing in a relaxed spirit.
