Photomonitor/Sculpture

October: work has begun at the British School at Rome, where I am very happily living and working until the end of the year as the Derek Hill Foundation Scholar (picture of marble cabinet here, which I am currently spending quite a bit of time exploring).

Anneka French has written an essay on my Body/Building polaroid works for Photomonitor this month and there is also a four-page feature on my work by Robert Preece in the October issue of Sculpture magazine with a small extract available online here.

Little Plug

Mercy have put Cardboard Folly in their top five collaborative projects of the year in an article that’s just been published on creativetimes.co.uk. Flattered. I should also take the opportunity to apologise for not having a PDF of it online yet. Each issue takes a couple of hours to assemble, so the poor artists have not even had their copies yet! Soon, very soon!

Vision magazine, China

Vision magazine have featured ‘Inhabitant’ in their discovery section in the May issue. I just received a copy in the post today and it’s a lovely magazine, full of gorgeous images on matt paper; the best kind.

Unfortunately I can’t translate the text, but I’m guessing it is pretty similar to that on my website.
