In the spirit of better late than never, I finally wanted to post about a piece for SCOPE I did on the phenomenal artist Mary Sibande, whose work is a vivid exploration of the intersection of the personal and political – as well as being outrageously arresting and beautiful. I hope the images below, courtesy of the artist and Gallery MOMO, will whet your appetite to come and read about her at: www.scope-mag.com/2014/12/incarnations-mary-sibande

Thrilled to say that my new article, “Who Stole Fun?” is now out in the new edition of Scope magazine.  You can find it at <http://www.scope-mag.com/issues/2012-1>.  I’m honoured that the article is laid out alongside the stunning artwork of Isabelle Menin.  You can get it as a free download, although I would really encourage you to check out the whole magazine.  It also features fascinating articles such as Sonia Katyal and Thierry Lenain’s piece on the future of the idea of intellectual property, Stephanie Anderson’s moving narrative on Haiti and Douglas Allen’s piece on the ways in which measurement helped to create the Industrial Revolution and the modern world, as well as artwork by Mark Chadwick, Kirsty O’Leary-Leeson, Peter Olschinsky, Verena Weiss and others.
