Complexed simplicity

Nothing is ever simple, even the simplest of ideas when acted upon evolves to reveal its true complexity.

Currently the studio has taken on a new lease of life working on an up and coming Collaborative exhibition. Some of the work will never leave the studio but at the moment anything goes!

I’ve been inspired quite a bit by the track S.A.L.T by The Orb. Sometimes there is no rhyme nor reason for creativity but it’s best to just jump on board as you’ll end up somewhere and most of the time the destination is only a temporary stop off point anyway!



Dark Matter

At present I’m making my way through Dark Matter by Gregory Sholette which discusses past acts events and facts that assess Art and Politics in the age of Enterprise Culture.  As well as No logo by Naomi Klein. Both complement each other really well.
