Sorry that the website menu bar has got rather confused. This will be put right in the next month alongside more updates and the launch of a new diary/blog/series of films going behind the scenes of the processes and places involved in my current work thanks to UCL Institute of Making. More soon.
My ongoing fascination and work with demolition has led to this upcoming series of events I organised with UCL Urban Lab. Thanks to Ben Campkin and Sabina Andron for all their help and all venues and participants.
Thank you very much to Tom Dwyer for all his inventive help getting this first prototype / phase of the pop up ‘Book of Hours’ up and running and out and about, wiring, lifting, arranging and negotiating the eccentric locking systems of filing cabinets with great skill, patience and aplomb.
Big thank you to Victoria Browne and all who helped make Kaleid 2013 such a success. It was great to be part of it -showcasing ‘fifty of the best artists’ books to an international audience – a unique opportunity for creative practitioners and invited collectors to view singular book works as printed matter, independent publishing, book arts, photography, drawing, sculpture, painting, installation, audio, video, digital and performative pieces.’ Photos on the Kaleid facebook page and on my ongoing work in progress flickr site www.flickr.com/demolitionsite
My first post Olympic talk beginning to examine the idea and reality of unfolding legacy in more detail with the great students from the Chinese University of Hong Kong here in London on a leadership programme at SOAS . Mid way through reading, enjoying and inspired by Phil Cohen‘s ‘On the Wrong Side of the Tracks: East London and the Post Olympics.‘
