He has collaborated with artists such as James Turrell, Josiah McElheny and Isaac Julien and musicians as diverse as Bill Laswell, Raoul Björkenheim, Toshinori Kondo, Lol Coxhill and Jah Wobble.

Dressing The Air is a unique open resource that aims to enrich creative thinking by encouraging a multi-sensory approach. A constantly evolving archive and creative news feed, Dressing The Air monitors and reports on a diverse range of art-forms from cinema to sculpture, painting to furniture design, land-art to perfumery.

Boboli Gardens

Niccolo Tribolo, Bartolomeo Ammanati and others

Ravello, Italy

16th century

Eleven acres of spectacular 16th-century gardens with a panoramic view of Florence, its own amphitheater and a wealth of historic statues, fountains and terraces.


The rigid geometry and layout in this style of garden is specifically designed to keep the visitor firmly oriented and, indeed, to direct the path of explorations and discoveries. This is a space designed by someone who is certain they know how it is best experienced and who has made quite sure there is little chance of deviation from their plan. This is landscape as theatrical narrative.
