bulbs (various) Melamine board, glass, 35mm images, black silicone sealan)
Its a shelf cos I only do functional things and
20C = consumption = stuff = shelves.
The spike is the j curve of mankinds technological
evolution we are now rushing vertical.
The structural fabric is wire, a tied or lashing technology going back
to dot. The technology of Polynesian navigators and later western colonisers.
Wire, also the connective thread of society, has tended become hidden,
covered or dug in. Optic fibres update this story.
The cladding is recycled fencing, another connective of suburbanity. Rough,
weathered, curved near the base reminding of trees, very much vanishing,
via the straight smooth and sleek.
Scales, serpent myth, this land.
Constructed/designed as evolutionary workshop theatre.
The images have equal importance with the object
place, the journey
In essence each snap can represent completion of the project.
Currently designer, builder, maker, parent.
Previously youth, firefighter, diver, theatre restaurateur,
sailor, boat builder
