"18 Minutes at Manchester Piccadilly is a work that explores the idea of time spent making a drawing. The work takes as its starting point the idea that a train station is a location cailbrated by the minute; trains arriving and departing at otherwise unused times such as twenty-three minutes past or fourteen minutes to the hour."
