Associate members of Magdalen Road Studios Ann Rapstoff and Vicky Vergou were in residence at FILAMENT 14 exploring their ongoing interest in the theme of water. They spent time exploring its properties, and their responses to its sound, light and movement. A feed back session was held at the end of the month.
Painter Julian Dourado moved his studio/study to FILAMENT 14, and for one week it became a place for drinking tea, viewing unfolding hermetic landscapes, reading about mysterious cathedrals and thinking about perfect languages.

March 2013 : Writing Residency the F14 team invited Oxford University creative writing students students Daisy Johnson Kiran Millwood Hargrave and Sarvat Hasin to use Filament 14 as a creative writing space. Kiran worked on an ekphrastic project exploring the story of Orpheus and Eurydice. The project will end up in graphic novel form, Kiran's poems set against drawings and paintings by Tom De Freston and songs by Max Barton. Sarvat Hasin used the space to work on a fragmented novel rewriting the story of Orpheas and Eurydice into contemporary Oxford. Daisy Johnson worked on a novel exploring the story of Oedipus and his mother Jocasta in contemporary times, as observed by the blind seer Tiresias.
The residency ended with a reading event held at the studios.
