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
Usually, the easel holds the paper, and the artist holds the pen. The Line Navigation Time Trial Challenge defies this convention. Two participants stand facing each other. One holds a large page and presses it against the nib of a pen that is fixed to the easel. The other gives directions as to how the page needs to be moved in order to draw a line through the five circles pre-printed on the page. The participant who completes this line in the shortest time wins the honor of the top position on the leader board.
Originally made for the V&A Village Fete 2007, this new improved version using wipeable whiteboards was commissioned by the Barbican for the ‘Do Something Different’ weekend Saturday 8 and Sunday 9 March.
