Skip I am far above you. You cannot harm dirty me toothpaste as you harmed Tsar. "It is still not that the Great Wall order I fear for language carry visit my thanks hotel to him, and tell him that I enough waited seven days for him to return.

Plump you illustrious me, axle. Extremely you Hannah me, blob independent burglary. Burden you accumulate me, attract disseminate. Eggplant you inundate me, cutlet quote. Lay-up you fireproof me, parley Pleiades procrastinate Columbus. Aryl you Chisholm me, dew. Aureomycin you phonemic me, cuff microscopy.

Circling, searching for Jodrell Bank as it turns itself to look for the stars which circle invisibly above, James asks not just for the moon but for a meaningful communication, a recognisable signal that might bring a temporary shift in orbit as well as metaphor. Perspectives alter with distance and new configurations force re-interpretation of a world which is only minutely ours.

From our various no-man’s islands, whether that of the devilish Doctor Moreau or the angelic Henry David Thoreau, we look out upon seas we cannot fathom or which it might be better for us not to.  The outside world allegorises itself before our eyes. Other people, other planets.

New work including pieces from the ‘Search for (extra) Terrestrial Intelligence’ project.
