I am very please to be have been invited by Wolverhampton University to speak at “The art of print” seminar, taking place on May 1st 2012. This event is part of wlvfotofest and I will present the work I do as editor of Square Magazine. Click on the logo to read the program and register an interest.
Rhubarb-Rhubarb is a non for profit organisation that helped me out when I first started photography. They have been hit by the government’s budget cuts pretty hard and need support. click on the logo for more information.
While the “Undata” project is created and distributed digitally, I wanetd to explore ways to adapt it to some sort of analogue method. This led me to the creation of unobjects, that is objects that have been modified using analogue techniques, in this case coupons and supermarket receipts and bits of white sticky tape.
undata is a collection of web sites whose content has been modified, published for free electronically as a .pdf file. It is a reflection on the compiling, display and use of data in our times of information technology. Do we get what we need? Do we need what we get? How do we recognise censorship, witholding of information and misdirection from truth? Is it still possible? Does it matter? Do we care?
The sound files are the legally compulsary counterpoints to this visual data, as directed by anti discrimination laws. The usefulness of the information provided thus is on a par with whatever is contained in the written originals.
Of course, this is also poetry.
