Personal profile


Jesse Hill’s research explores poetry beyond the written word, especially in relation to creative catharsis and environmentalism. Her PhD in progress involves the formation of eight film-poems representing the ancient Wheel of the Year ecological calendar. They are researching how we may utilise creative expression in order to attune to the natural cycles and rhythms of our interdependent ecology, and what effects this may have for the individual and thus the whole, within the context of the climate crises. Jesse has had their previous film-poems, Spring (III) (2019) and Making Space (2021), showcased at film festivals P0D.1 (Cornwall), Jump Cuts (Leeds), Dreamers of Dreams (London), Make Art Not Fear (Portugal), Festival Fotogenia (Mexico City), and Divine Feminine Arts & Film (New York).
