Pig in a Poke

By Genevieve Webb
April 2002, Corwen
A digital story from Capture Wales


Genevieve is currently working in Japan. Find out how she developed this particular interest...

"It's great travelling... I've turned living abroad into my hobby but, wherever I go, it's my memories which are always with me.

The geese who defended their young with their beeks
and my first winter where we were without water for four weeks.

Assisting my brother with his great experiments and going on road trips at five with no breaks.

Goats who had kids who would take you for walks
and ducklings who are carried away by hawks.

Fly fishing and hoping the shark wouldn't bite
and exploring the beaches but camping by night.

Preparing for Christmas - bye-bye to the geese
the land of the fairies who collected my teeth.

Dressing as a bride, already with a bump
and having friends who would listen without getting the hump.

These are all the things that keep bringing me home again to Wales."

Genevieve Webb

What are you currently doing Genevieve, we hear you are going off to Japan soon?
I'm 21 years old and have recently completed my degree in Fine Art from the University of Wales Institute in Cardiff. In my second year studying there, I went on a three month placement to Nantes, in France, and it was there I realised that I enjoyed travelling and living abroad. After graduating I spent three months working in New York and I am now living in Japan.Travelling has become my hobby indeed.

You made your digital story in Denbigh, quite far away from where you will be going to. Why did you choose to tell this particular story?
The story I chose to tell is an insight into my childhood growing up in the hillside of north Wales and how it has shaped the person I have become. To some degree this sense of adventure is still with me now. Even though I enjoy travelling around the world, there is always a constant pull back home, and Llandrillo is my home no matter where I am. I hope I have shared some of the magic of my childhood which I'm sure was made possible only through its location. This story seemed particularly relevant as I was living at home for a few months after returning from America, and before moving to Japan, and this time at home confirmed all my affection for north Wales.

How did you find the whole experience?
Making this Digital Story was an amazing experience, I learnt so much new stuff my head hurt, but at the end there was an enormous sense of achievement and having something solid to express feelings and ideas visually is incredibly motivating.
