THAT’S NOT ME, BY THE WAY, IN THE ‘APPROACHING DEATH PART 5 OF 5’ IMAGE. IT’S A LOVELY GUY FROM THE U.S. WHO VISITED THE WAREHOUSE ART SCHOOL END-OF-YEAR SHOW IN 2017.
I’m mostly a writer. Also sometimes a conceptual artist and musician.
In the 1980s I developed design methodologies for early on-line systems; and in the 1990s, research methodologies integrating qualitative and quantitative methods in a socio-cultural approach to educational research. This tendency to ‘go meta’ continues in my creative practice.
A committed green since stumbling on the Ehrlichs’ Population Resources Environment in 1970, I edited the North Oxford Green View for several years, and was a founding member and chair of the Westmill Wind Farm Co-operative.
I am concerned about climate change, bio-diversity loss and extinction; the rise of fascism; the self-consuming logic of free market capitalism; and the continuing ravages of poverty, misogyny, speciesism, ablism, religion and racism. But through the many years since I was one myself, I have always believed that ‘the kids are all right’. I find grounds for great optimism in the clarity of the current generation of young people.
