Writing

I write mostly while researching for my own projects, as a means to refine the focus on an idea. Text based dialogue with other artists and writers has also been an important tool for reflection on art practice and its raised questions. Beyond those two main strains, writing has often taken the lecture form along with notes on methodology related to workshops.
