Lives and works in Vancouver, Canada. Primarily interested in the following: a) Visual and textual lines; b) the antiseptic tempered by a quiver of the handmade; and c) the diagrammatic and/or explanatory, especially when cloaked in ostensible self-importance without necessarily being true, serious business. Adherence to stringent procedural methods allows for an iterative exploration of the above concepts ad infinitum [read more].

A teaser for The Possibility of an Island is currently on the homepage of Grand Union (Birmingham, UK). The Possibility of an Island is curated by Tim Dixon, and features work by Cory Arcangel, Jacqueline Bebb, Tomas Chaffe, Stuart Croft, Jason Dodge, Sean Edwards, Joanne Masding, and Andrew Sunderland; as well as work from my Excerpts series. The show opens 6-9pm on July 13, 2012 at the Grand Union project space.
An image-text pairing from my Excerpts series appears as a part of VerySmallKitchen’s contribution to the exhibition A Pigeon, A Kitchen and an Annexe: Sites of Alternative Publishing at Five Years in London, UK.
The nostalgic gesture of intentionally translating an up to date medium into its low-fi predecessor is the starting point for this exhibition: why use letraset when you can pick up any font off a drop down menu? Why publish books in the age of WordPress? A Pigeon, A Kitchen and an Annexe: Sites of Alternative Publishing invites you to step into the world of a bustling “press room” devoid of wi-fi: a scene created specifically for this show.
For this exhibition The Ladies of the Press* invites Annexe Magazine, Pigeon Magazine, and VerySmallKitchen to probe their practice as alternative publishers in a gallery context, collectively working towards multifarious outlets including a gallery exhibition, a publication, talk, and eventually a web based dispersal.
David Berridge of VerySmallKitchen writes, in an open letter, on the inclusion of my piece from Excerpts:
I think one starting point for this project was the small card you sent me of one of the image-text pieces from your residency on the VerySmallKitchen blog. I was interested in the equal emphasis on both sides of this card (the image on one side/text the other), and how – unlike the blog post’s downward scroll – to read the card required turning over, one side concealing the other in order to be comprehended.
A Pigeon, A Kitchen and an Annexe: Sites of Alternative Publishing is on view till March 4, 2012 at Five Years. The gallery is open Saturday-Sunday, 1-6pm and is located at Unit 66, 6th Floor, Regent Studios, 8 Andrews Road, London, UK, E8 4QN.
