I am working with Metal as Associate Curator, developing new programme and commissions in Southend and Liverpool. Most recently curated STILL, an exhibition about water with new work by Simon Norfolk, Gina Czarnecki, Markus Soukup, Howard and Matthews and Peter Cusack. The Howard and Matthews project 'AquaVoltaic' will tour on to other venues in 2012. Also just completed a 7 day lab working with Oreet Ashery and five artists, engaging with comedy including guest visits by Simon Munnery, Alex Horne and Shaista Aziz. Developed two labs focussing on Protest and Propaganda with Metal, including visiting speakers Stefan Szczelkun, Kayle Brandon, John Jordan, Jai Redman, Paul Sullivan and Hwa Young Jung.

In June 2011, I visited Canada to research a programme for a Marshall McLuhan seminar at Watershed. Working with curator Ihor Holubizky, we've devised a series of films, interviews and some reflection on McLuhan's continuing influence on electronic media. The programme was presented at Watershed in October 2011, including seminars and an interview with Paul Morley.

At the end of 2011 and beginning of 2012, I have been working with FACT on programme development, an artist professional development strand and business plan. This will include a new piece of writing, co-authored with Mike Stubbs.

Published Manual For Marginal Places in May 2011 with Sophie Mellor and devising some further work in 2012.

You can see a summary of writing projects and lab ephemera at viralprojects - my viral.info domain is still awaiting a refit, a project I hope to contend very soon.

If you're seeking information on PVA MediaLab, then please note I am no longer a Director and therefore not in the loop.
