About this project


A series of sculptural pieces loosely based on the unseen and microscopic organisms of life, and of their growth, death, decay and regeneration. These alternative ecosystems are small scale, complex, organised structures which can sometimes be read as visual analogies for the situations or states of mind we experience.
