This design wipes the smiley from the face of an acid house icon and responds to the law that set out to destroy rave culture in 1994.

Created for an exhibition in a reclaimed police station in Bristol.

Temporary Autonomous Art, London

In step with the spontaneous creative nature of Temporary Autonomous Art events I arrived at the venue without a plan of action and undecided on what to do.

Wall space and time was rapidly depleting when I spotted an an old clock in the corner belonging to the factory’s previous life form no doubt.


The Owl is not what it seems


Made from scrap metal with spanners for legs and welded to the top of a pole, this owl is constructed from rusting steel found on wasteland and welded in to position to keep an eye out at night when I was living on the site. This photograph captures the very last time I saw him. I left shortly after taking this shot and sadly never returned to see the owl again.
