Work has begun in earnest on For the Moment my MA project looking at our how we mould our behaviour with the tools we have shaped. In particular I am looking at the ubiquitous hand held devices that we all own and use and the evolving social behaviour that this is affecting. A recent article by Marina Hyde in The Guardian claims that “the revolution is over: the rude mobile phone users have won”. The revolution may be over Marina, but I think the evolution is alive and kicking.
For the Moment will be shown as part of Thought Atlas The Cass MA Fine Art and MA Photography 2013 Show at Spring House, 40-44 Holloway Road, London in September.

The shipping building and surrounding buildings were home to EMI for over 50 years with over 14,000 people employed there in its heyday in the 1960’s. As part of an ongoing project at The Sir John Cass School of Art Architecture and Design, I am undertaking story collecting with people who worked at this EMI site over the years.
The project launches today, December 17th 2012 – “What was the first vinyl you bought?” session with local member for Hayes and Harlington John McDonnell and artist Bob and Roberta Smith.
