Shetland ‘Cut up’ book

Intentionally without editing but with speed, steeling words phrases and sentences from anywhere; from conversations in a caffe or on a bus, plundering the constant dialog of a film or radio programme, extracting lines form a book or piece of text.  These culminate into a stream of thought that once re-arranged, cut up and pasted back down begin to take an individual form. The process may go on until a satisfactory result is met.

The words of the ‘Cut Ups’ shown here were taken and re-constructed during my 3 month Artist Residnecy in the Shetland Isles in 2003.

These and other works were exhibited during the solo show ‘From here – Where you are’,  at The Bonhoga Gallery, Shetland Isles, 2004.
