“I like ambiguity in my work (in a playful sense). We are ambiguous creatures living in an ambiguous world (which are our realities?). By taking an ambiguous position, I'm not stating this is how it is or this is how you should read my work. I like there to be space for the imagination to play and explore — to run with the work. Maybe, this is where the real art takes place?”

Darren Marsh: "weneverstoodapart is a visual poem about our relationship with other beings, both human and non-human. We have constructed our worlds with humans as the dominant or central character, and so find ourselves in an ecological and political era which mirrors the impact this brings to all life and the planet.

“A civilisation that chooses to drive ecological change, while refusing to acknowledge its own interdependence and interconnectedness, psychologically disconnects and isolates itself from itself and the entire biosphere. To act as if the world beyond humans is composed of "things" for human use is a catastrophic assault on the diversity, complexity, abundance, and beauty of life. We are entangled with other beings we cannot live without.”

Book 1 - A traumatic loss of coordinates
Book 2 - Things are exactly as they are, yet never as they seem
Book 3 - How enmeshed we are

Curiosity is an attunement to multi species entanglement, complexity, and the shimmer all around us. - Deborah Bird Rose.

By Darren Marsh
[Manchester, England]: Darren Marsh, 2018. Edition of 10.

Dimensions 328cm x 29.7cm; 16 page concertina fold. Unfolds in spreads and can be read as one continuous piece. Archival digital print on 70gsm Japanese Kozo paper. Archival digital printed Kozo paper covers. Printed paper banderole with title. Content, design and production by Darren Marsh.

Darren Marsh: "We code and re-code our worlds to create a sense of order and meaning from within a perceived chaos. Information is not meaning. Neither is information something that just exists out there in the world. It is a construct carried by physical markers and as such can be hacked into variable combinations.

“This project began with the proposition of creating a book using its own ISBN as a start point. An ISBN is an international machine readable code used to recognize and identify the product form of books. It contains information pertaining to language, publisher and publication, but not the work inside. So, what happens when the systems <ProductIdentifier> the ISBN becomes the content? How is it re-coded? And how is it re-read?"

Flös
By Darren Marsh
[Manchester, England]: Darren Marsh, 2022. Edition of 12.

Folded 10.5cm x 5.2cm x 3cm (4 x 2"); Unfolded 32cm x 32cm x 5.2cm. Canon Chromalife inkjet print on 70gsm Awagami Inbe and 75gsm Permalife 25% Cotton. Origami folds (1 folded permutation, each unique). Printed slip case on 90gsm Archival Trace. Includes proof certificate with edition number and artist signature.

Artist statement: '"Flös' is a meditation on a life lived within a mesh of entangled relationships. A world made up of complex patterns. Patterns beyond our known patterns connecting in unknown ways.

"In this world nothing makes itself, and nothing exists by itself. Beings fold with other beings and things fold with other things. Human and non-human, living and nonliving become with each other to bring about new possibilities of being otherwise."

We must reevaluate our entrenched ideas and preconceived notions.
                                                                                              –Lynn Margulis
