Updated (2021):

I make art.

Sometimes I write.

My work is about , including technology systems and complex more-than-human relationships.

I create interactive art installations using wood, paint, drawings, light, electronics, code, sensors, film & sound.

I always collaborate, including with animals, fungi, humans, trees, mould & birds.

I try to make my work accessible and with low environmental impact (please tell me if I fail).

My body is in Ireland.

I'm hopeful.

Magawa, the rat, who got a gold medal for his heroism, is retiring from his job of sniffing out landmines in Cambodia's countryside.

But a crew of new trainees is ready for duty.

Fairphone questions: does anyone have any experience?

Is it worth it? Are there similar alternatives?

I love the idea but am put off by the slick 'silicon valley' style of their brand. Can their message be trusted? Why do they have different models and keep changing them (surely the ethos would suggest one model that is modular)?

What about alternative operating systems? Compatibility with old files? Compatibility with chargers? Longevity?

The UK-based artist resource Curatorspace invited me to write up what it was like to spend a month making art with fledgling trees in Northumberland. So here it is:

I have named this critter Mrs. Brisby after the mouse in the brilliant movie "The Secret of Nimh". She comes to visit my back garden every day, grabbing some of the seeds that are dropped from the bird feeders.

She is very nervous around the dunnock and the chaffinches who move so quickly and challenge her for the seeds, but is less wary of me. However, she has not yet eaten from my hand.

Speaking of libraries, my favourite librarian was really happy to see me and my partner after 5 months of closures. She looked into my record and saw that an Annie Dillard book I had ordered was missing, so the next day she brought her own copy from her house for me to borrow.

I have tickets to go to an art exhibition/event. This is the first exhibition I'll have visited since last October, when galleries closed here. I am stupidly excited about seeing art in person again, and have been craving it.

I am lucky enough that lockdown has mostly been easy for me, but I have really missed libraries and galleries.

Found a really cool Kickstarter project raising awareness around autism yesterday! It's like a really cool 140 page long comic anthology featuring autistic creators telling stories about how it affects their lives. Omg! <3

1,500-year-old Ceramic Maya Figurine with Removable Helmet, from El Perú-Waka', Petén, Guatemala

New artwork presented on April 24th at VARC, Northumberland.

We, the mycorrhizae

Groups of six entered a completely dark room. They were handed a tube like a torch that emitted a high LED light, and explored a space with art on the walls and floor. In the centre of the room, a large altar sat. If they placed their torches down, they lost their light but lit a series of buried "roots", illuminating a screen nearby.

Community is sacrifice.

Tree planting is always for someone else.
