Hard Graph is an ongoing series of work made in response to the office and administration experience with the inherent symbolism of the A4 page.

The series started with The SPIKE IT project and  developed in the studio though the process of collection and destruction utilising domestic shredders with different security ratings.

The works reprocess the data and waste material creating artworks as alternative archives and evidence.  Evidence of Absence is not Absence of Evidence.  I reapropiate the George Simmel Quote: "Discretion is nothing other than the sense of justice with respect to the sphere of the intimate contents of life."

Utilising paper as a ubiquitous material, re-presents the 'outputs' of unavoidable bureaucracy and systems of life, from a personal perspective that has wider socio-political and cultural relevance. Where the aesthetic and meaning are of equal importance.

Interrobang 1 and 2, are meeting maps  made in response to specific and particularly pressured meetings.  Sketches where made and translated to works that encapsulate meeting notes and vinyl drawings mapping communication.
