Projects: Past and Present

My past project documentation is gradually being moved over to the Interact Archive – together with a growing collection of my other archival materials. The original project pages are still available in the Sean Clark Archive section of this site, but future improvements to the archive (such as an interactive timeline) will take place on the new site. Similarly, all of my current and future projects are now being documented on the Interact site under the Artworks, Commissions & Collaborations, Exhibitions, Events & Curation and Workshops, Education & Training sections.
