elementary calculus featured in the april/may issue of hotshoe international magazine.
"is calculus the loneliest branch of math? Functions describe an endless movement towards a limit but never an arrival..."

from the PPAC website: Un-drawn, a group exhibition presenting the work of J Carrier, Richard Mosse, Xaviera Simmons and David Taylor. Un-drawn offers 4 distinct perspectives on displacement and immigration from multiple locations across the globe. Collectively, they address how invisible or contested borders are revealed through images of the landscape, it’s inhabitants and the spaces or monuments in between the two. The images in this exhibition depict exile and migration, conflict and defeat, permeated by the desire to reveal a new understanding of place.
