Andy’s current research concerns temporalities of deep time as they enfold at sites for long-term storage of nuclear waste. He approaches this through writing and through practice, where he is currently developing a speculative plastic demonology using 3D printed artefacts, video, sound, performance and installations. He has recently shown this work at exhibitions including Perpetual Uncertainty, Malmo Art Museum, Sweden (2018), and published writing including Deep Diachronic Decay in PARSE Journal for Fine Art Research.
