A link to an interview I did with David Rushton at Summerhall. A bit of insight into my thinking and my contribution to the Metamorphosis exhibition.

During my time in Japan I noticed that a lot of rock faces and hills were coated in concrete which in turn had a grid of concrete laid on top.

What I was interested in was the this sort of battle between the two elements, how these two things would sit dormant and one day would be thrust into action and try to alter the others disposition. It was these two forces that intrigued me, how they would come into conflict and the results of that.

This project was heavily influenced by this thinking, setting the parameters for the experiment I am aware that I have no control over the outcome.

Opening on the 5th April 2019, this exhibition stems from my research from Japan with the Robert Callender Residency for Young Artists. In conjunction with ASCUS and the Edinburgh Science Festival.

This project will revolve around the rock surfaces I mentioned in an earlier post. The vertical surfaces I came across in Fukuoka coated in concrete and continuing on from the work at Sealoft in 2017.

The majority of the project will be done in situ, within the gallery space during the two weeks prior to the opening. I will document and post on this blog as I go.
