We Could be Rich, and Famous

(2013) Film installation (dual back projection), vinyl prints, printed booklet.   


A collaborative exploration into language with Victoria Macdonald, through which three works engage each other to form a staggered ‘triptych’. A System of Twelfths explores the potential of language annuals, and how a devised methodology can be utilised to produce the basis of complex, conceptual poetry structures. The work separates the 144 different words or phrases that were extracted through this selection process.

A System of Twelfths part ll arranges the selected language into an annual of abstract poetry and short stories with accompanying imagery, documented from the site in which the exhibition took place.

Both Ours and Neither Ours is a conversation of two halves, detailing the process of collaboration and dual artistic production.
