A Dialogue in Useful Phrases on the air

The sound mix of A Dialogue in Useful Phrases is part of Reuse Aloud, a month-long exhibition and radio broadcast throughout March 2013. The project will be hosted in The NewBridge Project Space in Newcastle and broadcast on basic.fm as part of its digital arts programme, Pixel Palace. Reuse Aloud is curated by Will Strong and Rosanna Skett and examines the art of using old and existing compositions to make something new, asking questions about originality in the digital age. It does this through an ambitious schedule of live and pre-recorded work with contributions from artists and musicians from across the globe. Sunday March 3 at 15.02 (UK time) is the first airing.

In this Dark Wood

There are still some copies available of my self-published edition of In this Dark Wood. It will no longer be reprinted by me (this means the open edition stops). In the Fall a trade edition will come out with another publisher. So if you want to have the artist edition, order it soon. On the webpage is a link to the webshop. Thanks for looking.

One Swimming Pool

I’m working on an Ed Ruscha inspired book installation that will be shown at the upcoming show ‘Ed Ruscha Books & Co’ at the Gagosian gallery in NYC (Madison Ave branch; documentation and artist proof portfolio will be shown).

The pictures below are production shots of a smaller B&W maquette. The final size will be 6.3 x 6.3 meters.

The project is based on Ruscha’s book Nine Swimming Pools and a Broken Glass from 1968. One of the pictures from that book was photographed and subsequently enlarged to the size of a small swimming pool. The pool consists of 1575 sheets, or 3150 pages. The size of these sheets is based on the size of Ruscha’s book. A small edition is planned of a set of twelve books containing all sheets in full-colour: One Swimming Pool in Twelve Volumes. The idea is to have a swimming pool that can be kept in a bookcase; also sheets can be taken out and used to recreate the installation.
