The monograph, Faster, Higher (2009) documents a multi-screen moving image work of the same name, commissioned by Film and Video Umbrella and BFI, and originally installed at BFI Southbank Gallery, London. The book was launched with the second staging of the work at the Hatton Gallery, Newcastle, and marked by an in-conversation event with Vicki Bennett (People Like Us) at Newcastle’s Tyneside Cinema. Faster, Higher is richly illustrated throughout with archive images, screen shots and installation photography, and includes specially commissioned essays by Adrian Rifkin and Chris Berry.
