Presence I, II, and III 2012 We all each one of us have an instinctive desire to leave our own individual presence within the world, be it through reproduction, cultivation, construction or creative expression. As a response to time spent within remote areas of the Nidderdale landscape this installation realizes humanities natural instinct to make that physical mark. To dwell within vast open spaces and connect with the physicality of the elements and the materiality of stone as a mark maker forms a connection that is real and true; a palpable relationship between man and the physicality of existence.
'Untitled' 2012 Our thirst for all things digital creates a disassociation of the real. As a society we are becoming less aware of the physicality of our environment and each other. This installation created at the Holy Trinity Church in Leeds challenges its environment. By binding monofilimant wire around large stone pillars, attention is drawn to the actual physicality of the space it inhabits. The collaborative act of binding this material to place, in itself creates interaction and mutual responses from the individuals who help create the piece. The act of knitting also forms the physical act of 'making' and a direct and palpable association to materiality and the real. Special thanks to Varsha Cohen & Claire Selman
