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.


the slowest train in the world

June 4, 2013


Philippa was recently asked by Tom Sowden from UWE in Bristol, and who is the art editor of the Artist’s Book Yearbook, to produce a piece of artwork for one of the 10 artist’s pages in the next edition of this biennial publication (edited by Sarah Bodman and published by Impact Press).


Naturally she said yes. However with a holiday already booked, this means there is approximately 16 days to complete and dispatch the work; therefore work began today on the 14.29 train from Rotherham to Lincoln… watch this space for more details.
