Some bad, some not so bad.

Varied thoughts, potentialities & ideas.

This image is taken from the front of an upcoming zine I will be putting together, releasing all my most personal Ideas into the public sphere. The zine will be an ongoing project, that I want to use as a form of exposure to the good and bad artistic ideas I get stuck in my head.

The project has also made me reach the decision to use scans of my sketchbook on here, as opposed to presenting images of work, but more to future ideas and thoughts in flux

Fig.1: A Group of plinth's

Fig.2: Biopsy, 2008 - A past piece of  my work

Biopsy was the first time I used the gallery space as an object for re-interpretation, and I still find this idea something that is not expolred readily and fully in current art trends. There are some artists who's work works in this direction, but I am very interested in creating new ideas together that fall between both site specific intervention, and restructuring existing architectural features.

New work I am developing, such as the cut plinthe piece Nice Little Slice is extending ideas I began with BiopsyThe playful approach to make the viewer question their own perception of material characteristics is continued, left questioning if this work is a meticulously orchestrated reproduction, or the actual material it represents.

After beginning thinking about new work, I have learnt a little about Gaia theory. I am finding the nostalgia of crackpot british science, especially that which is pioneered by Dr James Lovelock in the 1960's a real influence, in terms of the way an idea seen as ridiculous can represent something valid.
James Lovelock argues that such things as the level of oxygen, the formation of clouds, and the saltiness of the oceans may be controlled by interacting physical, chemical and biological processes. He believes that "the self-regulation of climate and chemical composition is a process that emerges from the rightly coupled evolution of rocks, air and the ocean - in addition to that of organisms. Such interlocking self-regulation, while rarely optimal - consider the cold and hot places of the earth, the wet and the dry - nevertheless keeps the Earth a place fit for life.
(Cited from text by Bruno Comby, independant researcher, president of EFN, friend of James Lovelock)
In this project Lovelock's text is something I intend on revisiting in different conceptual realisations, and reinterpreting its ever increasing relevance in the current societal awareness of our changing climate.
Lovelock's scientific practice was ignored when he presented his ideas, but Gaia has now become a respected idea.

Above is a screenshot of my website (featuring the work "flight pattern #1")*, which features past and present work, as well work which isnt on here just yet, but should be on my blog very soon!

* Flight Pattern #1 is from a recent series of digitally altered photographs, all of which play with existing happenings, re-presenting them in obscure constructed events.
