The sixth artwork in the ongoing 'Human Visions' series remembers a series of experiences I had in the mid to late 90s, and early 00s, during my life as a young man in ecstatic clubland. Whenver I took MDMA and danced the night away, I felt myself turning into a kind of 'flashing-eyed sprite' figure, and got myself involved in all sorts of escapades. In hindsight, this was the first glimmerings of both a queer and hyperactive identity, but this sprite - whose name was Minver - ended up as the protagonist in an odd series of poems, entitled Minver Stories, relating these adventures, both inner and outer, in a riddling mythical style.
