Simon is a performance artist, musician and writer. In 2014, he was awarded a PhD from Goldsmiths College for his practice-based thesis on zombies, capitalism and melancholia.

Simon has exhibited and performed at art venues around the world, and regularly plays in a diverse assortment of bands and ensembles. His writing has been published in a range of peer-reviewed journals, catalogues and national newspapers.

He was a member of the Leeds 13 – a group of art students who hit the national headlines after returning from a boozy jaunt to Malaga at the taxpayer’s expense. The ‘holiday’ was in fact an elaborate hoax designed to interrogate the authority and knee-jerk sensationalism of the tabloid press.
