Pleased to be invited back to the two week residency at Lemon Tree House in Tuscany. Held in an ancient hamlet (formerly a castle), the residency is structured around a series of craft talks held most evenings. As artist in residence, My talks offer thoughts about working across disciplines and my current work exploring recent evolutions in language and image.Read More
In May I spoke at #Narrative17 a conference held by the Initiative of Narrative Journalism in Amsterdam. Fellow speakers included journalists such as chair Jaqcui Banaszynski, CNN's John Sutter & NPRs Lulu Miller. My talk was an overview of my current thinking space on the altering of perception, new instant mythologies and the binary relationship between aggregation of information and obfuscation. Exploring the relationship between all this and accelerated technologies on is the essence of my current fiction and art project, also looking at the potential power of fiction as a critical device in these new spaces.Read More
I was invited as artist-in-residence by the wonderful people at The Lemon Tree residency in Tuscany. Two weeks of holding craft talks, stimulating conversations about practice, life and food with a varied and dynamic group of writers and artists, whilst still managing to work. Highly recommended!

Last week saw a deep poignant discussion unfold between award-winning novelist Joanna Kavenna, writer Garnette Cadogan, John Freeman and myself for the Berlin launch of issue two of Freeman's Journal. Themed family, we used this entry point as a way to scour the grit of how we are adapting (or not) to a rapidly changing world.
Manifesta performance piece coming up! I'm developing some new work for next year. Entitled 'Superimposition' it is a meditation on synthesized violence and propaganda, hopefully to take exhibition/book form. In the meantime I'll be testing it out as a one off performance at Manifesta. Helping me execute this ode will be brilliant butoh performer and dancer Valentin Tszin. If you can, get down to Zurich on 17 SeptemberRead More
