In 2010 I was invited to spend some time in Dublin Graphic Print Studios. For some months, I hung around the studios, videoing the painstaking processes and rhythms of the print works. I recorded sounds: water dripping; stones grinding; crashes of metal; squeals of presses.

Meanwhile the economic wheel turned: a downturn. Some were crushed. Some hung on. Some were swept away. This seeped into everything.

Before the Page is Turned is a series of five inter-woven videos that opens out a space to both hold on and to be swept along.
