I'm an artist and curator currently doing a PhD between
FACT, Liverpool and Manchester School of Art, on the old Liverpool Observatory. My research translated into a group exhibition entitled The New Observatory I co-curated with Hannah Redler, during summer 2017 at FACT. My practice is focused on relations between technology, media, and community. I employ a range of processes from historical research to printmaking, curation to mural making, publishing to workshops.
I'm co-chair of Working Group 1 of the COST Action on
New Materialism, co-edit the project almanac, and co-direct Torque, an experimental digital literacy project. I'm into co-co-co-co-llaboration!
I live and work in Thamesmead, South East London, where I'm developing a new
community radio station with TACO to be launched later in 2018, and I've also produced a number of projects with Peabody in the area, including a local culture guide, arts participation survey, and produced arts festivals in 2015 and 2016.
I have a BA (LJMU) and MA (Sussex) in Art History.
