This website started just before the government at the time announced that a referendum would be called for Britain leaving the European Union. From the start maybe the idea of trying to promote the languages spoken or at least recognised in the UK was like banging my head against a brick wall. Two plus years later my head indeed feels like it had been bashed against a brick wall and the powers that be have not provided much in the way of clarity. If anything it has intensified the divisions. With an ideal to unite the country!
Popular media speak of the death of democracy. I would from my own perspective speak of the rise of insanity or a fundamental misunderstanding of the structure of perversions from a particular perspective.
I started with an idea of placing imagery on fabric. In that quest I what I knew as fabric was now available in forms that most would not believe was made with the same thing. All be it re-engineering the components of the fabric. From one perspective that is madness but it’s is not it is Addictive Manufacturing and it reaches far into industries beyond what historically was known as a printing never mind images.
I present two perspectives one more image of something real, the other photograph. Both born from the imagination one more real than the other but both factual within reason of a kind. That have roots in Britain but it’s reaches left these shores.
In a bid to engage with the wider world, a matter of protection was required. There after non disclosure agreements may need to be the order of the day. At least that is meaningful in the Uk at least, as voting for anything else seems problematic

Expressing some love one image at a time has created a situation where even when trying to factually depict actual objects. Without the real object to touch even that seems to be insufficient to convince its actuality. Even when all that can be submitted for review is photo, image, illustration, tiff or gif based. And then is perceived to be only an idea. I have many ideas yet to be formed.
Some imagery on my front page is a from what is a precursor to production via 3d print-ing. which had been imported into a photo editing program and was not edited. In conjunction with that which is the actual.
I am aware how the visual domain is indeed trapped within the structure of language. But what has been more or a surprise is how what something actual is, fails into insignificance because it is not a thing! That is not the same as language as what it is, is what it has been described or observed, but it has no history prior to that what has been presented.
If by some form of adaption like a hoop is added, does that simple action trump what was before the hoop? And does the hoop have a specific role that then determines what it can be associated with?
We stand on the shoulders of giants, what would have been the case if those giants took every thing with them? Leaving only a stick in the ground would the stick then be only used in the ground and have no other role?
This is my stick, but can you see the wick? (above the a of tessellated) Does the wick in the form of an unknown geometric form yet regular candle determine the other forms? Which would all burn or melt if the heat was sufficient with or without a flame!
Original creations with previous design mark elements which have been altered but are made with emojis if you get my drift. Plus the elements with original one love heart and Love this… 25mm badge with custom red lips plus “mi luv yu bad ‘

This post is not about images or products more about prints and what is possible even when all has been said and done and time remains and cast its shadows, reflections, and be able to feel what real and not real,
In my creating, issues regarding the non pictorial finding manifestation, misinterpretations and misunderstandings may have taken place. These creations which I do not regret yet offer my apologies in advance if it caused offense.
If not i still have not lost these marks even if my focus has changed. The journey is the path, so ‘they’ say..
