The final form removed from the mold and sitting in position ready for the performance.
Pre-gallery Prep. This is the same structure that was used in the Sealoft piece Japan Experiment No. 7, it does need some alterations for it to fit the purposes of the new experiment so I took it to Edinburgh Sculpture Workshop were with some assistance from Joe Etchell the structure was made fit for purpose.
This gallery contains 4 photos.
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.
I was fortunate enough to be asked to produce a film piece for the Fright Night Film Screening this Halloween. It was a fantastic opportunity for me to continue working on a piece I’ve been trying to resolve for some time now. An eerie stop frame animation which really fits the bill in regards to this event. I hope everyone enjoys my film and all the others that exhibit.
