The sinking
The Royal Navy heavily attacked the German battleship Bismarck on the 27th May 1941. Onboard one of these British units was Lucas' Great Grandfather, Fred Bird. His account of the two-hour attack that eventually sank the Bismarck is detailed in a diary, which has now become a part of a Family Archive. 

In 'The Sinking', Lucas sets out on a small fishing boat in the hope of finding the place where this event occurred. With no map to guide her, she is forced merely to look out towards the vastness of the Black Ocean. The borderless expanse of writhing space keeps its secrets hidden, the surface now protecting the many victims it once destroyed. A metaphor for the expanses of time, the film allows the viewer to consider the fragility of their own existence, through two connected experiences.

La Mort Tojours
Based on audio and visual field recordings from the Paris catacombs and Buchenwald, La Mort Toujours is a meditation on the mysteries of time and mortality.

Between dream and nightmare, The Delmarva Chicken of Tomorrow is a traversal of here and elsewhere, first and third world; a fairytale of production, resources, capitalism, globalisation, refuse and refusal: The Delmarva Chicken of Tomorrow is a film not about the struggle to be seen, but about the struggle to see.

Around was filmed during a residency in Enschede the Netherlands, along with fellow artist-in-residence Shaun Stamp. The film explores the notion of newness, arrival, disorientation, and the emotional response to previously unprocessed stimuli which is encountered on entering an unaccustomed environment. The music, composed and recorded by Underwood prior to the residency, acts as a counterpoint to the bombardment of physical images and activates a separate, more personal overlay of involvement. This initiates an exploration of the juxtaposition of internal and external experience.

The work is a film investigation on absence. It belongs to a series of works that seek to explore the qualities of the drawing process.

Bed/Bad time stories
This work is a record of the endurance of my body when subjected to suffering. There is temporal cause and effect relation, which stimulates persuasive quality in the work. Relations between interior and exterior bridge external social, political and medical pressures.
Emotional states like psycho discomfort and disturbances manifest through body. I have been looking in to connections between culture, emotion, politics and physics, trying to find symbolism of logic. Perforation intensifies strangeness and disjunction. The work can be observed as reflective/ meditative body ritual playing with state of living in continuous anxiety and fear.
