Framework finished, ready for final checks before the concrete pour.
Materials have been ordered and have begun to take shape.
The framework is starting to take shape here. This is the beginning of a new set of experiments stemming from my experience of Japan. While there I came across concrete coated rock surfaces, this is an attempt to reduce the problems created by shifting land masses through natural disasters. I became increasingly interested in this quiet battle happening while the rest of the population go about their business. Silently in the background the concrete battles against huge amounts of pressure.
This experiment reflects on this pressure, of two materials or objects battling against each other as they try to retain their existence.
For the month of September I will be continuing to develop my research from Japan with a particular focus on shifting land masses and the tension created between the man made defences.
I am very excited to be involved with Lateral Labs and having such an exciting space to be working in.
This is the culmination of my research for this project with AMACollective. This film as shown at 5 Years Gallery in London at the exhibition Stories Can Set With Time, Just Like Rock .
This piece is just one of a number of works produced within this project and I will soon be ready to begin posting other realised renditions.
