These are a few of the projects I have worked on:

Transforming Collections : Reimagining Art, Nation and Heritage 

Transforming Collections (2021-2024) is driven by our belief that a national collection cannot be imagined without addressing structural inequalities in the arts. Its work will be carried out by an interdisciplinary team of colleagues from UAL Decolonising Arts Institute and UAL Creative Computing Institute working closely with Tate and a further 15 national and international collection and archive partners.

It will combine critical art historical and museological research with participatory machine learning design. It will embed creative activations of the research through artist commissions. It sets out to engage with the contentious histories imbued in objects and reveal the sometimes uncomfortable stories that collections tell.

Provisional Semantics: Addressing the challenges of representing multiple perspectives within an evolving digitised national collection

This AHRC/TaNC funded research project (2020-22) focuses on how museums and heritage organisations can engage in decolonising practices to produce search terms, catalogue entries and interpretations fit for purpose for an evolving digitised national collection.

The First Decade

The First Decade Project (2015) presents objects, documents, interviews and images charting the first ten years of the Crafts Council, our collections and their makers. New material and information is being added all the time to give context and depth to our understanding of our objects, archives and formative years. Scroll through the timeline, browse through themed selections or simply search for a maker or object or period to find out more about this rich and exciting period of making and craft development.
