I maintain an active ‘critical urban practice’ in three main areas: photography and visual work; curatorial and archival projects; and community engagements around issues of planning and design.  By critical urban practice, I mean a creative and reflective intervention in the spaces, processes, and experiences of cities.  For me, research and practice do not only inform one other, but they are inextricably linked: research constitutes a mode of practice and practice a mode of research.   In other words, engaging the world through practice generates new knowledge, which in turn shapes (and hopefully improves) how we engage the world.
