Biography

I am an artist, artist/curator, writer, and educator, working within the emergent behaviours that come of the complex protocols of platform capitalism, with a focus on the inter-dependencies between code and language in hyper-networked culture.

I am also founder of Banner Repeater; a reading room with a public Archive of Artists’ Publishing and project space, opening up an experimental space for others, on a working train station platform at Hackney Downs station, London. Ideas that come of publishing, distribution, and dissemination, that lead to a critical analysis of post-digital art production, are shared in mypractice as an artist and inform the working remit of Banner Repeater.

Recent and forthcoming writing includes: ‘covfefe: language within a meme economy’, “Text as Market” Artists Re-thinking the Blockchain, “The Currency of Data” Sonic Acts journal, ‘Ami Clarke: Author of the Blank Swan’ with Elie Ayache. My work is included in Information edited by Sarah Cook (2016) - an art-historical reassessment of information-based art and exhibition curation, from 1960s conceptualism to current digital and network-based practices - Whitechapel Documents in Contemporary Art and MIT press series.
