I realise it’s far from Easter, but looking back I was really humbled to find ‘I’m Full Cos it was Empty’ spoken word video used in Easter services.
I came up with the concept of a traditional/post modern mash up with famous paintings depicting the cross and resurrection with this mug ‘green screened’ into them. I must say, the work Andy Toovey did to pull this off was incredible…he brought the paintings to life in a way I couldn’t have imagined.
‘I’m Full cos it was empty’ I actually wrote the year before, and I had the opportunity to perform this piece live in many different contexts – some highlights were Spring Harvest and All Souls, Langham Place. This being said, it was always going to be interesting how my favourite ‘live’ piece to perform would transition to video, but in God’s grace I believe it stood tall in it’s own right.
I hope it has been a blessing, and I pray that it was and continues to be one way of communicating the most significant weekend in history.
