I am fiercely independent. I am also a prolific collaborator. The politics of human (and species level) co-operation is a central aspect of my work with legal codes, social interactions and technology. I believe that inter-dependence is at the heart of the human condition.
I develop labs, workshop scenarios, events and research projects which create a space for interesting and productive cross-disciplinary working.
There are some people and organisations I work with regularly because it suits a certain type of work. There are also, a great many people I have worked with on specific things because their knowledge or ability far surpassed my own. In any case, what I am looking for in a collaboration is something greater than the sum of the parts.
