'Open Studio' is a new programme curated by Families, Learning at Tate. I've set up an installation where visitors can trigger the camera shutter with objects, projecting the images as they're made. Influenced by Luc Delahaye's images in Tate's collection, which produce a sense of predicting, or just missing the decisive moments of traditional reportage. Open Studio is open to the public in Clore Studio, Tate Modern on weekends in April (5th – 8th April, 12th – 15th April, 21st – 22nd April and 28th – 29th April). www.tate.org.uk.
My third 'Photo-Soup' show, first one in Barcelona in 2010, second as part of Mexico photo festival last year. Photo-Soup is an idea for a collective group of artists to put together exhibitions without a curatorial premise as a starting point. Brings together an international and extremely diverse group of work and artists, for more info see www.photo-soup.org. Unit 24 is just around the corner from Tate Modern – unit24.info/contact-us/. Private view, Friday 20th April, exhibition runs until 21st May.
'Behind the Image' is a new text book by Natasha Caruana and Anna Fox, which includes my work and contributions from Martha Rosler, Vivian Maier, Jeff Wall, Karen Knorr and Hashem el Madani. Just published by AVA Publishing, for more info see www.avabooks.com.
'Collectible', curated by Rosalind Davis and Annabel Tilley opens on Tuesday 17th April at the ZAP project space in London. This large group show is part of the launch events for ZAP – Zeitgeist Art Projects. I'll be showing two small prints of The Hare and Skomer. All works are for sale.

Experimenting with different subjects setting off the camera. Apples falling, breaking the beam and triggering the shot. Thinking of Newton's apple and chains of events – minor events influencing larger. Working on new projection / film for Open Studio in November – thestudionotebook.blogspot.com
