MA Visual Arts: Book Arts 2012

Camberwell College of Arts


In a time when the act of reading is changing significantly, the physical book as a mechanism for reading, is being brought into question. My practice is concerned with the book as machine, or reading machine, and bound up with an imagined escape from the page.

Through a variety of media, including installations and bookworks, I examine how we read through machines and so how we interact with them. Using instructional language, questioning narrative text and visual signs on the printed page, I create work with existing and new material, both written and visual, processing my own ideas alongside the ideas of others.
