2010

Postcards from Leather Lane was a collaboration with writer Aoife Mannix, commissioned by Spread the Word and Camden Libraries. Inspired by Aoife’s work with local community groups and stall holders, we designed and produced a booklet of postcards about Leather Lane Market in Camden. The postcard booklet featured Aoife’s writing, accompanied by my images.

Artist Joshua Sofaer and curator  Simon Gould, in association with UCL Museums & Collections initiated a mass participation project to exhibit and explore a single object from the UCL Pathology Collection on a routemaster bus over
7 days, 24 hours a day. I was one of 7 ‘research provocateurs’ who manned the bus 24 hours a day and initiated research with passing public, students and academic from UCL.

Social Tapestries

2005-2006
www.socialtapestries.net

Whilst working for Proboscis on their Social Tapestries project I became involved in several interactive projects which explored the potential benefits and costs of local knowledge mapping and sharing. Feral Robots linked hobbyist robotics with community environmental activism. I also worked with a shortlife housing co-op, St Marks to uncover their history and look at ways of utilising technology to retain future knowledge. Reports from both projects are available to download from the Social Tapestries site http://socialtapestries.net/outcomes/index.html.
