Fond of process, Charlie breaks things, makes things and fixes things, to explore objects, experiences and materials. His work verges on the edge of sculpture, design and fine art but overall aims to challenge the function of objects in our everyday lives.
I listened to a lot of live music and bought a heap of records. One of the most important was by a musician I’d never heard of — a trumpeter called Jon Hassell. It was called Vernal Equinox. This record fascinated me. It was a dreamy, strange, meditative music that was inflected by Indian, African and South American music, but also seemed located in the lineage of tonal minimalism.
        It was a music I felt I’d been waiting for. (Brian Eno on Jon Hassell, from The Guardian, 2007)
