About me
As an accomplished creative producer, I’ve consistently delivered complex projects within demanding time and cost constraints. I’m confident managing and mitigating risks and issues, whilst maintaining progress in line with project plans. At ease with exploring ideas and determining how best to make any absurd vision a practical reality – by understanding the wishes of the people involved, identifying the resources required and bringing the elements together sympathetically. Able to control large (and also very limited) budgets and lead teams to deliver successful results. Currently available for projects in 2023 and beyond.

    G.F Smith Paper City publicationAs part of 2017's Hull City of Culture, G . F Smith commissioned several artists to produce works out of paper, which were then exhibited throughout the city.

  • Where Do We Go From Here?
    Where Do We Go From Here?Where Do We Go from Here? used a specially choreographed interplay of light, shadow and sound to guide people through Hull's Old Town. It encouraged people to explore the city's night-time streets as dormant robots awakened, responding to the city's architecture, interacting with one another and with Hull's residents and visitors. The site-specific installations focused on three areas around Hull's Old Town, each featuring a different configuration of re-purposed industrial robots of varying sizes from ground to rooftop. The robots communicated through woven networks and acted as light guides creating kinetic animations resulting in an inquisitive acquaintance with the city. With a wide range of light effects, from beams to constellations, shadows and reflections, the robots animated and highlighted unseen places and encouraged people to see Hull in a new light. Specially sourced and curated soundscapes added to the experience. The commission's exhilarating mix of art and technology embodied key themes for Hull as it reflected on a successful year as UK City of Culture and looked towards the future
