With a background in videography, Amy Story has an experimental approach in testing new processes for expressing the themes within her work. Amy’s recent work has focused on exploring the physical, social and historical landscapes of Cumbria.
Echoing the Lost Stations theme and created from many interviews conducted with members of the local community, Amy’s new commission Lost and Found will use the huge network of disused train stations and lines surrounding Barrow-in-Furness as an entry point to explore personal relationships to the town’s past, present and future. Featuring moving, ghost-like figures and localised sound, the piece will journey through a desolate space, undulating with the many voices and generations of the town. Through a non-linear narrative, the installation will unearth the impact of Barrow’s transitions throughout recent history on it’s people and imagine the paths for its future through those who know it best.
