How to Draw, Betty Style

During a two-year period Betty O'Connell-Rogers produced drawings of everyday objects including a hair brush, light bulb and many food items. She also wrote instructions so that others would be able to copy the technique. The result, in effect, is a series of algorithms.

In Betty's words: "This is a book of step-by-step instructions on how to draw simple things. It is aimed at younger people. It is just the way that I draw, so it doesn't mean that you have to draw like this too, as everyone draws in different ways."

Any profits from the small margin on sales of the book will go to art materials for Betty.

A0 Zero Receipt Poster

Background:

It turns out that it is possible to use supermarket self-checkout machines to buy nothing. The artist did so frequently during a two year periodHundreds of the resulting receipts, recording the non-transactions, were collected. These were compiled into two books ('Less' and 'More Less' see ); a short film was produced ('Exchanging'); and an A0 print can be purchased below.

Contra-Invention Catalogue

Catalogue for Contra-Invention, an exhibition of Traffic Warden's evidential photographs. The book collects all the ‘contravention images’ collected between 2008 and 2010 along with meta-data listing camera type, shutter speed, aperture, other photo-metrics and an essay by Hito Steyerl. Photos include examples where wardens (Civil Enforcement Officers) inadvertently captured themselves in reflection. Also the artist managed to manoeuvre himself into the images by following them around. The show was nominated for The Deutsche Börse Photography Prize 2012 and the catalogue was on Martin Parr’s Best Books list 2010.
