Jaunt To Piel

Short dual projected films in exhibition produced as part of the Artful Ways commission.

Rachel made several trips to Piel Island, by ferry and by foot, and sought to engage with fellow pilgrims to celebrate being alive, and having the opportunity to reconnect after being in lockdown. The film she created for Artful Ways brings together experiences and perspectives from Piel Island, and is presented using two projectors side by side.

Made to viewed in person not online, however, the moments of conversation, glimpses of togetherness and celebration of being together in a wonderful place comes across in this short film expressing a moment in time.


“My favourite place in our borough is Piel Island. To me as a child, everything interesting and exciting happened there. On the tip of the peninsula, overlooked by the Port of Barrow and the deep water shipping lane, Piel is one of our jewels.”
