Joe Moss

Please join us for this special episode of Future Artefacts FM with Joe Moss’ audio piece Infinite Customisation. In this 17 minute audio-book style work, we meet the ghost of J. Thaddeus Toad, transported from the 1908 novel, The Wind in the Willows, and risen in the future. Following Toad’s perceptions, the work draws contrasts between the linear perspective of industrial England in the 1910s to a far different reality of revolving subcultures, nostalgia and technological beings. With Joe, we unpack the connections between nostalgia and progress, where Toad’s opinions may come from and where the idea of modernity still haunts the present day. Together we consider Toad’s legacy, how he implies capitalistic growth, and what economic alternatives that throws up, while considering the impact these larger models have on our cultures and connections with one another. For our regular listeners, you’ve been hearing Joe’s amazing work since episode one, as he is one of our music producers on the show!



Joe Moss makes work with a vast appetite for pre-existing cultural and material references. Connected by the logic of collage, Moss’ works weave together the contemporary logics of a variety of fictions, examining cultural threads from high-fantasy to streetwear with entertaining and slightly sinister results. 


Moss’ diverse output ranges from solo presentations to radio production to collaborative exhibition-making. Recent projects include Model Village at NN Contemporary, Homegrown on the Hauser & Wirth website, residencies at Eastcheap Projects UK and Stokkoyart Norway, and The London Bronze Editions Foundry Fellowship. Moss graduated with a BA from Central Saint Martins in 2015, spent three years on the Conditions Studio Programme between 2019 and 2022 and is currently enrolled on the MFA programme at the Slade.
