This interactive site showcases the Dummy Jim film project by artist Matt Hulse. The inspiration comes from a book discovered in a second-hand bookshop entitled I Cycled into the Arctic Circle – a diary of a 3,000 mile cycle ride made by a profoundly deaf, Scottish, factory worker called James Duthie in the 1950s. As well as keeping up to date with developments and supporting the project by purchasing goods, you can cycle the route from Scotland to France on your browser, whilst Dummy Jim, played by Samuel Dore, signs key words in the right hand corner.

Latest news is that adventurous musicians Olly Rundell and Alex South will be setting off for the Arctic Circle in June, following the journey James Duthie made almost 60 years ago, in order to raise money for the film Dummy Jim and the National Deaf Children’s Society.
