Trade Off to Loneliness

Writer Biography
Jess Bunyan is an activist working towards societal change with Rising Arts Agency in Bristol. Dabbling in writing and soft sculpture as her means of creative expression, with themes of vulnerability and physicality at their core as a means of starting conversations about how we relate to the world and each other.

It was nice to go back to some of these musings at the beginning of lockdown and see how they could be more moulded into something. To put it into The Great Margin context and have other people interpret and represent something personal was a really revealing process too. The creative exchange and the ability to communicate something on different levels, for different people through different mediums is really special.

“All of the films in “Bulletins from the Edge” are the outcome of a three-way conversation between the creative production team, the writer, and me. Some of the films were quick and easy to make. We were able to intuitively ‘tune in’ to each other and we reached a shared vision that we were all happy with. Other films took much longer to make and required several conversations with the writer, sometimes leading to an extended back-and-fore process with the editorial team before we settled on a joint approach.”
