Essays in the Air is an archive of many pieces of work completed over the past ten years; from art criticism to travel writing. It is intended to provoke the question ‘What is the difference between critical and creative forms of analytical thinking and productivity?’ and deliberately adopts a playful and irreverent approach to voice, form & style.
Approaching many different sorts of topics and issues within the domain of cultural studies & the humanities, Essays in the Air embraces a vigorously interdisciplinary approach, transiting across the fields of literary criticism, art history and creative writing.
Nature and art[ifice] is one of the master-themes of Essays in the Air. So too, as you can see from my writing on art – is that space between image and text, that Barthes was so fond of. As these essays unravel onto cyber space, I hope these concerns will become clear. My ‘Short Stories’ page is the forum for works of fiction that are rooted in particular historical moments. For a fuller explanation of the work on this site please visit my ‘About’ page.
Please take your time to explore the site and its contents. I welcome feedback, so do get in touch if you are interested in getting involved in this project or wish to make a comment.
