Two prints that the fantastic Hugh Barrell gave me as a present. They were taken on my family holiday in Normandy.

The illustrated highlights of my recent trips to the Hunterian Museum and the Grant Museum of Zoology.


Final order for my book. Printing/sewing tomorrow.


Charlotte Whalen

Documenting police archives in Guatemala, beautiful juxtaposition between order and disorder.

"Charlotte's work as a photographer combines images and text to bring sustained attention to under-examined political, cultural, and environmental issues. She is currently working on two long-term projects: one on development and the subprime crisis in the United States; the other on transitional justice and the aftereffects of Guatemala's 36-year armed conflict. To see more of Charlotte's work from Guatemala, and her work with undocumented Guatemalan immigrants living in the US, visit"

WHAT AM I? progress


A few mock ups for the shoot.
Providing evidence that my collections have existed.



I feel that I will, not out of choice, become this man in later life.



My collages for the Kraffhics book The Cut Outs. I was going to wait until the book came out to show them, but it's been put on hold and I've been wanting to show them for quite a while. Impatience prevailed.


With the project being extremely open with regard to content and outcome, I endeavour to project myself as a collector/archivist. In this way, I felt it necessary to study order/disorder and instantly was attracted to the similarities between collecting and archiving.

The above prototype was following the method of constructing miniature models of some of the items I have collected over the past year or so with a view to collate them in a glass top cabinet as a series of artefacts. This is a comment on the witty archiving of George Maciunas, the founder of the Fluxus movement, who raised general objects to the stature of art, simply by definition.

Realising the outcome of the project would not cater for my need to my disorganised, compulsive nature. By taking the subject of collecting a lot less literally, I decided to compare collecting/archiving to hoarding. Hoardism is often wrongfuly portrayed by the media as a side-effect of laziness (read any Sun article with the words 'slob' and 'hoarding' in the title) when in actual fact, it derives from numerous obsessive-compulsive disorders.

 Red Room by Robert Therrien

"Some objects he uses are found, some are made by and for the artist. His use of domestic images might suggest an interest in the spatial world of still-life but his interest in the human body’s interaction with space is more connected to architecture. Therrien’s images and the objects he selects expose the hidden drama of the unnoticed, invisible, physical and mental relationships which exist in the world of human beings, between human beings and between the objects they create to help them live their lives. "

This is an installation by the French artist Robert Therrien, which comprises of 888 red objects saved, stacked and stored in a purpose-built room. This almost obsessive nature of this collection warps the viewer's perception of the boundary between archiving and hoarding, challenging their understanding of order/disorder. The act of collecting items to such a compulsive degree was a conscious decision by the artist and so this suggests the process was of much more socio-scientific relevance than the outcome.
