So, we’re installing albeit with a labour day break and Ursula and I have now physically met and talked and hugged and all the rest of the human stuff. So, this morning I’m in a cafe in the east village and Ursula is in her apt and we end up back communicating by skype, and […]

I have been making short pieces using morse code as a base. The first one is called Recession. It spells out the word “recession” in morse code continuously throughout the piece. I want to make 4 pieces in total- the others will be titled “Sub-prime”, “Quantitative Easing” and “Toxic Asset”. The idea is to make […]

More for the list: An art work designed to be served and drunk at private views which will inspire everyone to look at the person they’re talking to rather than over their right shoulder. A text based wall work that will extend any really good book you read so that it will never end provided […]

I have been re-reading the work tweets that I collected and I am still really interested by them. To that end I have been making a very low-fi work today. I am using an old fashioned label maker to recreate the tweets that I found a few weeks ago. I would like to send the […]

Hi everyone, Just wanted to give an update as to where we’re at. Narinda and I had another good skype chat yesterday and we’re really making progress. We are now concentrating on writing letters for one of our pieces, and I sent some this morning for N to look at. Will post a couple up […]
