‘ . . . ‘Fragments from the Field’ was a project that began with me finding myself in exile from my adopted hometown of Connewitz, Leipzig, Germany under extreme conditions… I was suddenly on a night flight back to the UK, and made my way swiftly to the safe haven of Brighton on the south coast, where I was gladly able to install myself in the bunker of my close associate Paul Drury. My first duty was to procure myself a typewriter to work with, and thus the ‘Fragments from the Field’ were born… in an effort to generate new material, to document this turmoil, and also to keep my thoughts occupied with something creative during this time of great distress . . . ‘
Fragments from the Field is a collection of ‘found’ manuscripts on assorted papers from the atomic field… each one entirely hand-crafted and entirely unique, all forming a series of fifteen C4 envelopes… Each piece includes:
