I am an artist and writer and I live and work in Newcastle upon Tyne, UK. Previous work has included large scale architectural installations and cross artform performances.
In 2010, along with a musician and a writer I was commissioned by Chester Performs to create a sound and visual installation for Up the Wall festival of live arts at Chester Castle. This piece then travelled to the Playhouse Theatre, Liverpool for the Everyword Festival and to The NewBridge Project, Newcastle. In 2012 I presented work at the Hatton Gallery, Newcastle, and, working alongside an architect and an archaeologist, at the 2012 Venice Architecture Biennale as part of REcall, a project which sought to formulate a new role for the architectural environment through the re-appropriation of European sites with a difficult history. I was commissioned to make a large scale site responsive work for the Maison de la Culture in Amiens, France in Amiens’ floating gardens. This formed part of the Art, Cities and Landscape festival in the summer of 2013. Alongside a composer I presented the video work Spider Web City at Uncharted Festival at Porto Palermo Castle, Albania in 2014 and No Map, Only Memory at the 2013 Lisbon Architecture Trienalle. In 2016 I led the project Protohome.
I have also been involved in curating exhibitions, events and festivals, including Urban Organisms, Hidden Civil War and Deep Adaptation at The NewBridge Project, Newcastle, Sustainability in the City of Flux at Newcastle University, and an event on Housing and Crisis at Durham University.
I have spoken at numerous events, workshops and conferences, including the Royal Geographical Society, the American Association of Geographers.
I am a trustee of The NewBridge Project, in Newcastle.
