    of the most important are not represented by this selection of works but have nevertheless had a profound impact on me and my art work the extraordinary mathematician Mark d Inverno who continues to challenge my thinking always with humour and with whom I have learnt to see the creativity that can come from exploring conflicting worldviews the visionary liver pathologist and stem cell researcher Neil Theise who has patiently shared his research with me and changed forever my understanding of the body and the inspirational materials scientist Mark Miodownik who has shared his unique library of strange and uncanny materials with me on numerous occasions The apple does not fall far from the tree I was born in Birmingham UK My father David had begun his career there as an apprentice at the Austin Motor works He was fired for spending too much time working on his racing cars and for insubordination evidenced by late night welding sessions in the factory workshop resulting in giant amalgamations of metal A Privateer racing driver he was well known amongst his circle of friends for his risk taking his parties and his sometimes excessive behaviour He would take on seemingly impossible tasks and complete them pushing himself and his machinery to the limits He owned and managed a BMW garage for many years before his death aged 43 in a helicopter crash The design process and materials of my piece Trans Plant made for Birmingham reflects my father s love of mechanics and his respect for innovative manufacturing I have been told many times that a piece would be impossible to make too technically difficult for its day too expensive too big It hasn t always been easy but I ve made most of those works Thanks for the bloody mindedness Dad

    and finding analogues for those images via google image search The codependent nature of the connections between mind and object In his book Thinking Through Material Culture Carl Knappett 3 discusses the codependent nature of the connections between mind and object He takes a relational approach to perception and concludes that our understanding of material culture is a codependency of mind agent and object Assuming my perception is relational and codependent is a useful tool as I interrogate my perception of the letters that I have received and as I conduct my own writing experiments It has also been useful to look at copies of letters inscribed by allegedly psychotic writers The well known letters by Emma Hauck have become key works touchstones that have helped to push my thinking and my writing In the exhibition Beyond Reason Art and Psychosis 4 were a series of so called artworks made by the patient Emma Hauck titled Letter to Husband These pencilled letters are typified by one in which Hauck wrote ca 1909 over and over again Sweetheart come in pencil until the single page of paper is reminiscent of a field painting a dense layering of text that becomes image I look at these works reproduced in a catalogue and imagine Emma Hauck writing them and find it hard to believe that she did so on the understanding that she was making art and that they would be exhibited in a gallery after her death It makes more sense that they were letters a correspondence from her to her husband willing through text her husband to visit To rescue her from the asylum To hear what she has to say Who knows because the implication of these being in the Prinzhorn Collection is that her letters were never sent If this is the case she was doubly betrayed once by whomever she trusted the letters to believing they would be posted and secondly by the re branding of them as art The works are labelled with her name and her apparent mental illness as though the illness if it were accurately diagnosed was as much the author or as though the letters cum artworks were a gauge or expression of her illness If such repetitive writing was an expression of psychosis could a state of psychosis be induced temporarily by writing in a similar way repetitively Simulating and triggering psychotic states When I embarked on the Bad Hand writing series I did so to test whether the process of writing a brief phrase repeatedly would afford me a sense of psychosis My mimicking of Hauck s situated cognition was very partial I wrote not from an asylum but from the comfortable safe quiet freedom of my basement and was an attempt to explore the potential connections between the bodily situated experience of such writing the concurrent state of mind of the writer and the resulting letters When I began I felt self conscious though I noted that as soon as
