My essay ‘The Many Masks of Manifestation’ is featured in this interdisciplinary anthology which explores the complex relationships in an artist’s life between fact and fiction.
This interdisciplinary anthology explores the complex relationships in an artist’s life between fact and fiction, presentation and existence, and critique and creation, and examines the work that ultimately results from these tensions.
Using a combination of critical and personal essays and interviews, MASKS presents Bowie as the key exemplifier of the concept of the ‘mask’, then further applies the same framework to other liminal artists and thinkers who challenged the established boundaries of the art/pop academic worlds, such as Friedrich Nietzsche, Oscar Wilde, Søren Kierkegaard, Yukio Mishima and Hunter S. Thompson. Featuring contributions from John Gray and Slavoj Žižek and interviews with Gary Lachman and Davide De Angelis, this book will appeal to scholars and students of cultural criticism, aesthetics, and the philosophy of art; practising artists; and fans of Bowie and other artists whose work enacts experiments in identity.
I’m proud to have my work featured alongside contributors such John Gray and Slavoj Žižek.
Notes are coming in for Lightships. This is one of the most delicate moments.
Everyone keeps telling me to take a break from post-production and the edit of Lightships. This is akin to asking a story to stop. It’s not possible at the moment. My mind won’t stop trying to seek answers.
