I’ve just completed Master Rock, a new commission from Artangel & BBC Radio 4, which is a performance and radio broadcasts live inside a mountain on the west coast of Scotland.

I write fiction, critical and theoretical texts and edit publications. With A Bao A Qu Reading When Attitudes Become Form (Los Angeles/Vancouver: New Documents, 2013), which was awarded an Alcuin Society prize and is translated into Swedish, and my first collection of short stories The Mechanical Copula (Berlin/New York: Sternberg Press, 2011), is published in French as COPULATION MÉCANIQUE (Paris: éditions ère, 2012). I am founder/editorial director of The Happy Hypocrite a semi-annual journal for and about experimental art writing. I’ve written the screenplay for GONDA, a film by film-maker Ursula Mayer based around Ayn Rand’s 1934 play Ideal, commissioned by Film London, and published as a ciné-roman by Sternberg Press.

I’ve been an invited Writer-in-Residence at Lisbon Architecture Triennale, Kadist Art Foundation in Paris and Whitechapel Gallery in London, and have been awarded as a Jerwood Creative Catalyst.
