on top ofPhilippa recently contributed to the annual World Book Night event organised by Sarah Bodman of UWE. This year’s theme was based on the text ‘Watching God’ one of the short stories within Three Moments of an Explosion by China Miéville. The brief was to read the story and send a visual response to the text. The work was exhibited from 1st – 30th April 2018 in the study area at Bower Ashton Library, Bristol. The work has only been collated and published as a paperback ‘ur-text’ which is in keeping with the book’s theme. The title is Their Eyes Were Watching God – the book searched for but never found.

A copy of the artist’s book has been accepted by Tate Britain for their artist’s book collection.

A copy of the book can be ordered here.

Philippa and Tamar MacLellan – a regular contributor to the Caseroom catalogue, recently submitted a co-written essay to The Blue Notebook Journal Vol 12, No.2– (published by Impact Press).
The article examines the collaborative practice of Tamar MacLellan and Philippa Wood through three of their most recent artists’ book projects. Having taken the decision to undertake new ways of working, the aim is to share something of this journey drawing upon pivotal WordPress blog posts which enabled the sharing and exchanging of individual, intellectual and emotional responses within the development of each project.
A big thank you to Sarah Bodman for publishing it, and our thanks too to Angie Butler who proof-read the first draft and offered invaluable feedback.

world book night united artists

April 25, 2015

We were happy to once again be involved in UWE’s world book night contribution – organised by Sarah Bodman and staff from the Centre for Fine Print Research – this year’s task was to read the Stephen King novel The Shining and produce a miniature model based on an object from within the book. Philippa’s contribution was several stacks of old newspapers (from The Outlook cellar) and a wooden box of oranges (purchased by Hallorann).oranges2low

The miniature models have been turned into a short film (shot on WBN) called Shine On – see link below:

The models will be exhibited at the CFPR at UWE and also photographed by Paul Laidler for a book.
