At midnight, the police helicopters siren droned overhead for hours waking me up from sleep.

The following day I found out that there had been a terrorist attack close to my home in London.
The helicopters droned every night for a week after the attack.
I drifted into sleep to the pulsing sound and I remember thinking, is it safe to sleep, is it safe to dream?

‘Is it safe to dream?’ is my response as an artist to the events that have taken place this summer in London.

The fear that emerges at a sub conscious level is explored and the threatening sounds are given a dreamlike rhythm.
