Valeveil publications

Feb 15 2012

The piece “Children should be supervised at all times” is now published electronically by a small Swedish publishing company called Valeveil. I must admit that the way the text and the voice are synchronised together is quite clever and is working well.

The Gathering

Feb 14 2012

I was selected by Rhubarb-Rhubarb to take part in a charity auction held on the 22nd of March in London, at the Diemar – Noble gallery.

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.

Unobjects

Dec 05 2011

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 Nov 2011

Nov 15 2011

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.
Issues will be launched at irregular intervals, depending on the amount of material I process. The Nov 2011 issue is available here

01—–Urdu porn (s)
