CONTAINMENT FOR THE BODY. 2015
The body is both an instrument for creation and a vessel for thinking and experiencing. Architecture can be considered as a container for the body, but its presence is a trace of thoughts and actions. This approach explores the tension between interior and exterior; a tension which can be found in the built environment and also in the relationships between thought and bodily action.
Using the limitations of sheet materials, I maintain the integrity of the whole surface by distorting its original flatness rather than cutting. The solo engagement with the task provides a degree of difficulty. What is left in the resulting work is a trace of the struggle with the potentially unmanageable quality and quantity of material, this provides the possibility for the form of the work to be discovered. Through this process, I attempt to inhabit the forms themselves, and to varying degrees, they become a kind of architecture for the body.
