Tim Shore works with moving image, text, drawing and installation. His research led practice explores the evidence and history of place and the narratives, stories and retellings that make a place known.
Recent projects include BlindSpot (2015), commissioned through New Expressions 3. This site-specific film installation responded to the now empty rooms and spaces of The Workhouse in Southwell, Nottinghamshire (National Trust).
He is currently working on Derby Omphalos, investigating the history and meaning of 27 Queen Street, Derby, a now derelict building that was once the home of John Flamsteed (1646-1719), the first Astronomer Royal. This is a commission for D-LAB and Arts Derbyshire in association with QUAD and the University of Derby.
Tim’s films include Fits and Starts of Restlessness (2012), commissioned by Film London for Dickens 2012, which walks the same streets in Farringdon, London that Dickens walked, providing the inspiration for his novel Oliver Twist (1838). His films have screened widely at international festivals including transmediale.07 (Berlin), Edinburgh, Rotterdam, Los Angeles, Yokohama (Japan), Reel Dance (Australia tour), Oberhausen, and Ann Arbor (USA). Other screenings include BFI South Bank, Arnolfini Gallery (Bristol), Oriel Mostyn Gallery (Llandudno), Channel 4 Wales and the British Embassy, Paris.
Tim studied graphic design at The Polytechnic Wolverhampton, and animation at the Royal College of Art, London. From 2004 to 2013 he was Head of Animation at the London College of Communication, UAL and since 2014 he has been programme leader for BA Hons Graphic Design at the University of Derby.
