Introduction I started out as a child, but I like to think I've come a long way. My better half has said the jury's out for a while. I guess it's not really that important to me, as I never find answers move me like questions. I don't feel any older than when I was ten and saw my grandmother lying in her coffin. That was a long time ago, but time is a fiction in every important way. You either get that, or you don't get it yet.
Interests Human history (there might be another kind), ancient, enlightenment to Industrial, and the brutish and short 20th Century. I make: Bronze and steel bells, bicycles, photographs, large paintings, moldforms, costumes, written words, typography, collage, urban culture and resistance. Studying: Japanese Architecture, ancient technologies and agriculture, evolutionary theory, behavioural psychology.

Which do you prefer and why: whittling with soap or whistling with wood?

Whistling in the dark, equipped with a sharpened piece of wood and some soap. Hey, I whittle, don't you worry.
