lie lie lie arose from an experimental collaboration with fellow artists Susie David and Gabrielle Hoad at Dawlish Warren National Nature Reserve, supported by a bursary from a-n The Artist Information Company. Joint actions and activities focused on creating dialogue between the human and nonhuman, often through strategies such as mimicry and hiding. This co-curated publication also appeared at 'Counter 2016' Plymouth with Spacex.

lie lie lie was made for 'Throw only to an alert catcher' a show of shared work in progress that took place in three beach huts on Dawlish seafront (2016), later transferring to Gallery 333 Exeter Phoenix. Aspects of the collaboration featured in a paper presented by Mark Leahy after alert catchers: a report on an other (than) worded event at 'Beyond Words: Privileging the Unspoken in Arts and Communities in a Posthuman World', Plymouth University, March 2017. An edited version of the film Throw only to an alert catcher (2016) was screened at Jamboree 2018, Dartington.
