Selected Publications

The following is a selection of my output published in peer reviewed journals and publications.

Peer reviewed publications in journals and proceedings as a visual artist
       The following items I wrote as critical responces to some of the themes I have deveoped in my creative outpout

Constable, M. (February 2015). “The Analogue and the Digital Head-Death.” Visual Studies. Taylor & Francis. UK.


Constable, M. (2014). “On Contrast.” Turps Banana. London, UK. (Issue. 14, pp. 50-57).

'Turps Banana': IMHO the world's best painting magazine.


Constable, M. & Tan, A. (Nov. 2009). “Visual Digitality: Towards Another Understanding.” Proceedings of Re:Live Media Art Histories. Melbourne, Australia. (pp. 26-29).

This was the paper that was published in the book: 'Re:Live: New Directions in Mediab Art History' (pp. 347-356). Cubitt, S., Thomas. P., (eds.). Cambridge, MA: The MIT Press.


Constable, M. (2008). “New Technology, The Old Masters and their Joint Effect on the Look of the Contemporary Blockbuster.” Turps Banana. London, UK. (pp. 30-37).

This was an early paper. A bit naive, but somthing I am still proud of.
