Concrete Hopes, 2017
Hopes and built structures. Tracing back from the Utopian Brutalist developments, and stone or concrete geometric grave goods, I went to visit the concrete factory at Hope, Derbyshire UK.
Claiming the Territory, 2009
Making my own work as part of a secondary school creative project. Taking young people to the Vauxhall Car Plant in Luton to challenge them to make an artistic response to the world of work. Extracting quotes from the book 'The Peregrine' by JA Baker connecting the world of work to the natural world.
Construction One, 2012
Construction One explores the relationship between drawing and fabrication techniques. A theoretical design acts as a vessel to explore how we can visualise building construction information. These instructional, two dimensional construction diagrams have been followed and amalgamated to produce a three dimensional construction diagram.
