Objects for a Studio began in 2008.  The project has involved me spending a single day in another artists' studio, with the intention to create work using the materials that surround me.  Each studio day is documented with a single photograph and titled with the sequence, date and location.
The project explores the context of artistic production; the ability of the studio to become both the artists' ivory tower and self imposed prison; enabling and restrictive.  The project also considers my role as the interloper; crossing the threshold into the privileged domain of another artist. 
Between 2008 and 2012, I have worked in 60 studios, across the UK and also in France, The Netherlands and China.
