I never made it to the show nor even installed my own work as my Mum became very ill and was admitted to hospital. It was lucky that I had been to Hausman’s the week before and had gathered all the books of interest into two boxes.  Thanks to Hausman’s, especially Nic, for being interested in this gesture of sharing books with the gallery.

I am thrilled to have been awarded the University of Arts MEAD Fellowship for 2015 for my project The Longest and Darkest of Recollections.  The project is a visual enquiry into scientific research, the Anthropocene and the idea of irrevocable human impact on the earth.

I will be setting up an artist blog as a means to record the project’s progress and share visual research.

I am starting a project for Onward Arts with nurses in the Main Outpatients Department at the Royal Sussex Hospital.

This is on the wall down in the basement – photographs of the department in the 1960s and then in 1983. Now things are looking a bit worse for wear.


Happy to have a photograph from Examinations up on the Photographers’ Gallery website.
