a film clip of the live install at todaysart (a recording of an hour or so condensed into less than a minute!) the installation ran all day, every day, producing fantastic new colours and forms.
A Cure for Concrete was exhibited at TodaysArt 2019 in the Electricity Factory (Electriciteitsfabriek) in the Hague, Netherlands, September 19th-22nd 2019

I’ve just been announced as the newest artist in residence at Crossing Parallels, TodaysArt + TU Delft’s joint platform. See the press release here for some info about the project.
My part of the Textiel Factorij project included the opportunity to spend a few weeks in India doing research into the arts and crafts techniques used during the age of textile trade between the Netherlands and India. I have been working with craftspeople in Gujarat (Mata ni Pachedi artisans, who paint textiles used in the worship of Hindu goddesses, and who also use block printing to aid their production; Block-carvers in Pethapur; Digital fabrication expertise and the FabLab in Ahmedabad CEPT University.) The theme of my project is automation.
I have recently started a blog about my project Signature Print, and I still have a lot to document!
The artwork outcome of the project will be presented at Museumfabriek (formerly Twentse Welle Museum) in Enschede, the Netherlands, in 2018.
I have been selected to collaborate on the textiel factorij – an artistic research project based on the mutual heritage between India and the Netherlands, inspired by the textile trade during the Golden Age. More news to follow!
I’m currently occupied with THEPort hackathon at CERN ! check #THEPort15
