Publication coming out

The fall has been very busy with other things but contains some interesting milestones. My work will be included in an upcoming book called "Hyperdrawing : Beyond the lines of contemporary art" edited by Phil Sawdon, Russell Marshall, and others at Loughborough University in the UK. The new book will look at aspects of drawing that go beyond current expectations of what drawing can be. Their first book, "Between the lines of contemporary art" focused on ways contemporary artists use relatively traditional materials associated with drawing and included work from 43 artists including Cornelia Parker, Tracey Emin and David Shrigley.

Meantime also, I'll have something published in TRACEY which is an online, peer reviewed journal at Loughborough University, run by a host of interesting academics including Sawdon and Marshall. I have been a fan of TRACEY for some time, and submitted an article in response to an open call on the topic of art and technology. After a radical rewrite - peer reviews are very useful - digging in to the meat of what I wanted to say, I managed to really clarify ideas that have been trying to come together over the last couple of years. I think it will be very fruitful for future work.
