My work is a sensible response to situations that I am in. This has led me to work in open artists collectives and to produce books. I have been wary of commissioned work unless in response to specific spaces, situations and communities. The media I used has mainly been writing, photography or video but has also included curation, performance, music and activism. I have tended to reject establishment modes to embrace more fluid situations
Born in London post WW2 of displaced working class parents I grew up in the suburb of Shepperton. I studied architecture at Portsmouth before joining the Scratch Orchestra. I had some success as an author in the UK and USA with three books on basic life supports: Survival Scrapbooks: Shelter, Food and Energy. I ran the Portsmouth Arts Workshop after being inspired by the Drury Lane Arts Lab and came in contact with leading experimental artists of the time. Music continued to be a thread in my work - but I'm not musician. Recent project Agit Disco.
