The Archive/ Book Project

Taking an earlier idea for a large anthology of works, the 'magnum opus', but concentrating equally if not more on writing as well as visual work.

Structure of work:
Each letter of the alphabet becomes a type of book or form of writing/ presentation of information.

Each entry in the book can become a lengthy essay or possibility for a future project. It can be an exercise in a style, or be wholly fictitious, or have the form of a documentary.

The (invented) character of the principle writer or archivist is the unifying element of the work. Yet this writer is also a fiction as well as an expansion and enlargement on my own personal interests as seen in my visual work. The whole work is a fiction, stuffed with archival material.
