My Occupation Artist and writer, or writer and artist.
My Bio My work is diverse and it encompasses video, animation, installation, photography, text, performance, sound works, programming, electronics, roleplaying games and various hybrid genres or formats derived from them. These commissions and self-initiated works have been seen and heard in digital media, on radio, television and the stage, in art galleries, at film and art festivals, in print and online. I've lived and worked in China and Japan, all over the UK and throughout Europe.

Exhibitions include 'New Forest Pavilion' at La Biennale di Venezia, the International Symposium on Electronic Art (ISEA) in Nagoya, Japan and 'Broadcast Yourself', a survey of artists' works on and about television since the 1960s. In 2004 I was awarded a Berwick Gymnasium Artist Fellowship by English Heritage and the Arts Council of England. 2006-2007 I was artist in residence at the University of Edinburgh's ESRC Genomics Policy & Research Forum.

Things I Don't Mind The World Knowing

Spoiler alert: I'm thinking my next book will be about...
... alerting people to spoilers, but spoiling it by telling them a spoiler that it's a spoiler and that the whole point is that it's all about spoilers.
Why are some people obsessed with spoilers, anyway? Forget spoilers, they're photo books. Read them backwards, or from the middle forwards. Actually, you should try doing this with novels as well.
Everyone needs to know about these authors and artists...
Me, obviously.
This book is addictive. Read it. (At your own risk.)
