DOING THINGS TO BRAINS

Read, listen, watch, look.

Works by writer, traditional and digital multimedia artist and technician, Gary Dorking

"I guess people who like my work enjoy the not-knowing, the 'what am I about to read this time' of it, maybe they generally get a buzz out of the same things I do... or perhaps they just want to see what a man brings back when he's been into space."

Welcome! Feel free to see this site a little like a theme park: wander around taking in the sights, read, listen, watch, look at fiction and artworks in a wide range of styles and mediums, all aimed at doing things... to brains.

Postcards from elsewhere:

Gary Dorking refuses to be a particular type of creative. His works, you could say, are like vacations: he travels, and he likes each journey to be somewhere new or at least, walked along in a different way. If you join him, you wont be doing so because you like his style, but because you want to take a mystery tour. His books have you walking into situations wondering what it is you are being faced with. It may be the private thoughts of a middle aged woman as she sits at a bus stop wondering what life might have been; you may be introduced to the other characters, as ‘reader’… you may laugh or cry, be profoundly moved, or a little uncomfortable – or worse – but it will hopefully always be something new, something found on a journey.
Likewise, his creations in other mediums are exploratory and commisioned work is personal to the cause.

Creating things can be a bit like cooking: sometimes you want to make a three course heavy meal, and sometimes something a bit lighter…
