Material Play, 2022

An ongoing practice of experimentation investigating material properties and possibilities.

About process and making.

(Not outputs or objects)

Working with clay, plaster and string, instinctively, in particular exploring ideas of gravity – the forces that act upon us.

First iteration of an ‘aerial assault course’, for my protagonist the plaster.

A hand-knotted string, forming an organic structure, in which to cast plaster.

‘Gravity casting’ capturing the action of gravity on the plaster as it changes physical state from a liquid to a solid.
