Before his death in the summer of 2011, the artist Robert Callender and his wife Elizabeth Ogilvie discussed a retrospective of his work, in the form of a publication: A2B. Robert conceived of this not as a book, but more a selection of small pieces collected in a 'rummage-box' or treasure trove. Elizabeth began fundraising for the project in the autumn of 2011, with private subscribers immediately responding to the idea of A2B. The generosity of these first subscribers enabled early research, development and production of a mock-up of the publication: a box containing several individual publications and pull-out items. In 2013 the project was recognised with a significant award by Creative Scotland. This work was launced in June 2015. In 2012 I was the first recipient of the Robert Callender International Residency for Emerging Artists. Since then I worked closely with Elizabeth Ogilvie and Lateral Lab.
