Humber Mouth Literatur Festival 2013 commissions Humber Dreams

Humber Dreams is an installation that captures the thoughts, dreams and wishes of people in Hull. It aims to reflect the local spirit and atmosphere.

People’s dreams and thoughts, written or printed on labels of transparent film, form a floating ‘landscape’, similar to the mist hovering on the Humber on a foggy day in November. This misty ‘dreamscape’ can be read and will evolve throughout Hull’s literature festival from 8 - 18 November 2013.

Working and living in a studio in Berlin, Wedding, for a month in May 2013.
A piece made on this occasion, Orbit, will be on display at

Spurn Head, a spit of land on the Holderness coast, is a three and a half mile line of sand and shingle that forms a sweeping curl where the North Sea meets the Humber Estuary. It is a place of continual change – of constant erosion and reformation. It's a haven for plants and wildlife and also a place of man made interventions. The Humber is the UK's busiest shipping channel, requiring a permanently manned lifeboat station.
On Spurn is a research residency for six artists, in partnership with Yorkshire Wildlife Trust. During the summer 2008 Bob Levene, Pete McPartlan, Rick Welton, Jo Millett, Rob Gawthrop and I developed new work in response to Spurn Point.

This project is supported by Arts Council England, Yorkshire, the Yorkshire Wildlife Trust and East Riding of Yorkshire.

Sounding, commissioned by FringeMK 2009, was installed at Midsummer place in Milton Keynes from September 2009 for two month.
This project and FringeMK 2009 are supported by Midsummer Place, Arts Council England, Arts Gateway MK, Milton Keynes Community Foundation and thecentre:mk

You can see images of work in progress and the final installation on the Sounding-blog.

Working towards The Hepworth Wakefield
Wakefield Art Gallery commissions: Wordscape

WORDSCAPE was on display at Wakefield Art Gallery from November 2007 until March 2009 when the gallery closed due to its imminent move to The Hepworth Wakefield:

"After nearly 75 years at its current location, Wakefield Art Gallery will close to the public on Sunday 29th March 2009.

The building on Wentworth Terrace is to be replaced by The Hepworth Wakefield, a new purpose - built Gallery on the historic Wakefield Waterfront designed by the award-winning architect David Chipperfield."

This project was supported by the Arts Council England.

From Book to Book is an exhibition of artists’ books made in response to books themselves. Gathered together in the exhibition the books will present a consideration and celebration of the book and the connections from book to book. One of the 46 book-works displayed is Vice Versa. The exhibition is curated by John McDowall and Chris Taylor.
