How did you become involved in artist’s books?

I use books as a format if it is the best medium for the subject that I’m working on. Having collected over 3000 definitions of art from the internet, turning them into ‘A New Dictionary of Art’ seemed like a good way to present them back and see what they amounted to. Likewise, for BREAKING, I collected a year’s worth of Google News headlines and the book format worked well for them, although they have also featured on billboards and short animations. 

What is the focus of your practice?

I’m interested in words, text and meaning. I want to get to the bottom of things – though answers always seem just out of reach. So my practice could be seen as a series of enquiries into things that interest me about the world we live in. 

What are you working on at the moment?

I’m developing a new podcast based around interviews with artists, to find out more about their creative endeavours. I hope to record a pilot episode later this month.
