Founder of the Library of Independent Exchange (http://www.l-i-e.co.uk) an ongoing library/project focusing on the dissemination of independent publishing, and how it functions as a resource.
The core aims of the L.I.E are to develop discussions and exchange, exploring the processes of publishing, collaboration, and dissemination.
L.I.E has an ever-increasing permanent collection of works by contemporary independent art publishers and artists. Rather than presenting itself as a conventional Library, L.I.E aims to explore how resource functions and how it can be utilised; making its collection accessible to the public through the project’s curated programme of events and exhibitions.
