I will be presenting at this invitational workshop which approaches the themes of ‘Perversions of Paper’ specifically from the perspective of contemporary arts and creative practice. It brings together invited participants from a range of different practices, each of whom focus in different ways on the use, reuse and misuse of the page in a creative context.
There will be a series of presentations, followed by comments and a round table discussion. The aim of this workshop is to generate a genuinely cross-disciplinary conversation about the book. What might recent experiments with the book’s form say about its status in the digital era? Is a fascination with its physical mutations indicative of a cultural change? Is the book turning into a new kind of object?

Exciting times are here again! I will shortly be undertaking historical research at the National Arts Education Archives (NAEA). My visit is inspired by the Bretton Hall school’s educational ethos: “Excellence is accessible.”
This residency complements my recent research in Shanghai, as I work towards a solo show in Spring 2015. I am creating new work exploring the tensions between how knowledge is created/stored and how it is passed on/taught.
You can follow what I’m up to here.
