I am an artist, philosopher, and psychotherapeutic counsellor writing about bits of matter and bits of data, with a specific link to psychoanalysis, desire, performance, queer, cybercultures and digital images. I was a Reader in Philosophy and the Image at Central Saint Martins, University of the Arts, London. Currently, I am Professor Adjunct at the University of South-Eastern Norway. My interests are in the trans-disciplinary fields of lens-based images, contemporary theory and the convergence of art and psychoanalysis.  I am the lead investigator on a mad project of bringing together artists, philosophers, curators and writers to explore the fate of the photographic image online. I was awarded AHRC research grant (jointly with Prof. Johnny Golding)  that allowed the setting up of a transdisciplinary research network to try and really make a difference in this field both locally (London) and internationally. The grant resulted in my book  On the Verge of Photography (ARTicle Press).

I Have taught a number of courses, broadly concerned with the convergence of art, philosophy, and science. I lead the Doctoral Research Platform at Central Saint Martins, and teach the PhD research seminar “Art of Questioning”

Some of my recent books are: How Photography Changed Philosophy (Routledge 2023) ‘Fragmentation of the Photographic Image in the Digital Age‘ (Routledge 2019) and Fotografie nach der Philosophie  (Merve 2020).

The question that I am currently working on is the ecological ethics that emerges out of the entanglement of psychotherapy and ecology.
