2017: ArtSlant Georgia Fee Artist Residency
I was awarded the 2017 Georgia Fee Artist Residency to re-typeset and print Hope Mirrlees’s 1919 modernist poem, Paris, a Poem, in a number of artist books. During the residency, I employed a mixture of traditional and contemporary methods of production to create the piece. This involved working with classic Parisian and English typefaces alongside antique paper and ephemera from 1920’s Paris, alongside modern technologies (sound-recordings, risograph, photography) to investigate the everyday language of a city, juxtaposed against its history.
