SO happy I came across this lovely work by Paul Johnson. I’m really entranced by these little moments. Landthropologic, Earthworks In Motion from Paul Johnson on Vimeo. Enjoy. And check out Paul Johnson !
I am not usually one to share ‘inspirational’ talks or pithy quotes. To be honest, most of that kind of thing leaves me flat – sorry if that seems cynical or jaded, but there’s a tendency toward the superficial ‘instafix’ in this culture that is served by this material. However – I have also been… Read More
I have always ben fascinated by flight, and the movement of birds in general. There’s something rather otherworldly about it (to me) for some reason. One of the things I would truly love to see in this life is a huge murmuration of starlings. I have seen smaller ‘swarms’ of them once or twice, but… Read More

I have been thinking about a series of related concepts/ideas in the last little while … having the luxury of a little time to allow things to percolate through my brain, see where they take me. The swirl of idea(l)s has caught me up in the last 48 hours, and has insinuated itself in the… Read More
… that I came across today. A quote, actually, from Martin Creed, that sums up some of the ideas that have been rolling around in my head for a while now. On a more literal level, working some of this out through the creation of the original Boundary|Time|Surface installation in 2014, and in other ways… Read More
