In February 2014 I resigned from my ‘brand planning’ job at advertising agency Saatchi & Saatchi London on the ground of moral reasons. I am now a PhD Candidate at the University of Southampton researching what the practices and subjectivities of ‘subvertising’ (illicit material interventions into outdoor advertising) tell us about advertising power. The broader fields of interest informing my PhD include urban/architectural subversion, ethics, and theories of negativity/pessimism. This blog is employed both as a kind-of thinking sketch book and also a place to gather finished writing, photography and film productions.
