[...]

I remember making a sound installation for an exhibition of artists' film at Waddesdon Manor about this time. I don't remember any other details other than Buckinghamshire County Council were involved, as was a lens-based artist with an interestingly formatted CV (yellow paper inc. photo) who studied at Saint Martins. The work was called Semaphore. I have a slide.

[...]

I remember being part of a large exhibition in the Brighton Fringe in 1998 or 1999. I was pleased by the work but it was not well received.

[...]

I remember an exhibition somewhere in England in 1997, in the South West perhaps. Seemed like a big deal at the time.

I remember an exhibtion in Plaistow, London, in 1997. We organised it ourselves. I think we were quite proud of it.
