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.
