2021 February: Dwelling in the Unknown as a Day-to-day Matter of Course

My reading this month Anomaline The writing has curved itself finally down into an arc, a real story arc. This last third of the novel was the part I began to doubt if I would ever succeed in writing, but it turned out that the pact I made with myself over the Christmas holiday actually … Continue reading 2021 February: Dwelling in the Unknown as a Day-to-day Matter of Course

2021 January: A Writerly Odyssey

Authors and Agents: BA Lecture for Wimbledon & Camberwell College of Arts, Jan 2021. This month was for me, an interesting experiment in commitment and writing. It is fitting, then, that I was able to start off the new year by giving a lecture entitled Authors and Agents for fine art students at Wimbledon College … Continue reading 2021 January: A Writerly Odyssey

2020 December: Wrapping Up

I am a feeling a little inert, probably because there are a number of things to wrap up this month. I have my first Contextual Studies-type lecture to give to BA students in January, the Writing for Practice Forum to fully take responsibility for, a contribution to propose for the next issue of Phenomenology and … Continue reading 2020 December: Wrapping Up

2019 May: Acknowledgement and Rejection

Tom Cardew and I are awarded the Golden Aesop Grand Prix in Contemporary Art at the Gabrovo Biennial of Humor and Satire, Gabrovo. 2019. Ah, I feel giddy.

2017 November: Fake Storytelling

Week 1 Struggles My psychological turmoil is only worsening I’m afraid, and totally eclipsing any sort of idea of ‘work’; I scarcely know what that word means anymore. Where I find I am now incapable of doing even certain simple tasks without breaking down, there are still some circumstances in which I can learn something … Continue reading 2017 November: Fake Storytelling

2017 October: Being Daring by Accident

Practice Event 2017 (MA interim group exhibition): Ghost Writing   “Here K moonlights as a novelist. In her novel she is tethering out of the text a being; some sort of agent. Think of the novel then as a sort of textual artificial intelligence incubator, where she is cooking up a person. As with any … Continue reading 2017 October: Being Daring by Accident

2017 August: Resisting the Dissipation of Energy

Anomaline I am at a comforting impasse with Meredith (novel). Something like the top of a hyperbole, where, after following a tangent for some time now with the book (basically just writing out images I found titillating without quite reasoning their trajectory), certain attractors inherent in what is already committed to the journey so far, … Continue reading 2017 August: Resisting the Dissipation of Energy

2017 July: Reading Huysmans and Woolf

I have felt a little lost. Although my novel is the singular goal I set myself for the time ahead, now that I am free from the supposed obstacles that preoccupied much of my first year in the MA, I still find it hard to write it very often. I wondered that this may be … Continue reading 2017 July: Reading Huysmans and Woolf
