Hi DWF! I’m a British arts writer based in Melbourne. In recent years I’ve written for a number publications, galleries and artists as well as completing an honours thesis on the work of Thomas Hirschhorn. In 2014, after having some misgivings about the field of contemporary arts writing, I began my blog which seeks to explore, develop and extend conversations surrounding the genre and its evolving digital forms.
