Current Projects

Currently I am writing for the first volume of the three-volume Bloomsbury Encyclopedia of New Media Art, to be published in 2022.  My contribution is on Education and role of art schools for the volume, ‘New Media Art: History and Theory’, edited by Dr Charlie Gere and Dr Francesca Franco.

I am also working with Dr Nick Lambert and Dr George Mallan on a book about the early history of the Computer Arts Society.

Cybernetic Serendipity: History and Lasting Legacy

This project is about artists living and working today in North Norfolk who focus their gaze on the uniquely beautiful sea, sky and landscapes of this part of the British Isles. I am looking for artists specialising in landscape who give a contemporary twist to this traditional idiom that speaks of the unique feel of this locality. There is a charity affiliation with a percentage of profits from this project benefiting local housing and wildlife charities Homes for Wells and Norfolk Wildlife Trust. Visit the dedicated website Spirit of Place Norfolk.  See also the CONNECTION : OPEN 2018 show I curated for Wells Maltings.
