Peter Nash’s multi-disciplinary practice is informed by an ongoing research into pre-internet sources of knowledge and methods of communication. Embracing a deliberately hand-made aesthetic, and drawing on influences including 1970s & 80s children’s television programmes, fairy tales, reference books and museum visits, the work is an exploration of human fallibility in an age of digital perfection, alternative facts and increasing automation.
