Claiming the Portable Home/ Creative Acts of Identity Placemaking within the Networked Digital Domain


Cultural Probe: 8 July 2008 to 8 July 2010


These two books formed part of my PhD submission. The research was practice based and the thesis is therefore an analysis of the work made as well as a deconstruction of the social space and creative space in which it took place. This, by and large became a critique of creative practices on the internet. ‘Cutlural Probe’ is an artists books that was submitted alongside the thesis though is itself a piece of work, one that documents two years of tweeting.

Both these documents will be available for free download very soon. However, if you would like to have a bound copy you can order one from lulu.com.
