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.

Sexy films

I made this film. Essentially a valentine’s card, it’s short but has a sexy soundtrack and features the ultimate erotic architecture; several ‘crotch shots’ where walls and ceilings meet in the pavilions in the Giardini della Biennale in Venice.

Topophobia

After a great opening at Danielle Arnaud Gallery, the exhibition is open and the publication on sale. There are some fantastic essays in the book and it’s beautifully designed by Ken Kirton – great use of different paper stocks and embossed cover. The book will be available as an e-book on Amazon shortly. I will be talking about my work in Topophobia at the Symposium at Central St Martins on 10th February – more information on this, the publication, artists, exhibition etc HERE.

Block Magazine

I found this little magazine in Tate Liverpool today, it’s called Block.

They say that they are ‘a new magazine for writing – review, reflection, story, poem or polemic – on architecture, built space and the city and its representation or exploration through sketch, photograph, drawing and graphic image. Block aims to present architecture’s reflection across a wider field of contemporary culture, and its place within it.’

I love it. Issue 1 is called ‘The Modest’ and it is a recycled paper love-fest for all buildings plain and humble. AND it’s yellow. All in all, it’s made my day. Issue 2 is on ‘The Facade’ a subject that I constantly return to, so I am excited to see it.
