How did you become involved in artist’s books?

I first started making books to mark the process and progress of residencies. (See: the ‘Locational’ series.) The act of turning the page to reveal a different aspect appeared to be an ideal way to present the durational nature of a residency.

What is the focus of your practice?

Type as image. Repetition and small increments of change/modification. The book as a container for experience. 

What are you working on at the moment?

A proof of a new series of books charting the elemental nature of the landscape around my studio: oil, coal, water etc. It seems to be about danger and risk, not about beauty or serenity.
