My specialism is lateral thinking, resolving the complexity encountered in the world with reductive poetic logic. I intertwine commercial and cultural practice: responding to the paradox of daily life and the complexities of project assignments. I seek focused solutions that feel inevitable. I get there by starting at the beginning, asking why, what if… then making sense of the things I find with radical acceptance and by embracing truth.

Please follow me on Instagram. I am reposting works, exploring the things I have made over the past twenty years in preparation for the next twenty years.

Line Navigation Time Trial Challenge
invented for the Victoria and Albert Museum’s V&A Village Fete

Normally the easel holds the paper and the artist holds the pen. For the Line Navigation Time Trial Challenge it’s the other way round. The artist holds the paper, and an easel holds the pen (fixed horizontally at waist height). 

For this challenge, two participants stand facing each other. One holds a board with a printed sheet on the reverse pressed up against the nib of the pen. The other gives directions as to how to move the board in order to draw a line through five circles printed on the page.

The aim is for the participants to draw a line that passes through the ten circles in the shortest time possible and compete for the honour of the top position on the leader board.

Made in collaboration with Mike Jack, Simon Jones and James Killcross.
