'Glow' in group exhibition 'Like Gold Dust'
MetadataShow full item record
In my work I apply a range of processes to found and manufactured objects, with a view to creating associations between process and object, and between different objects. Transform an object, for example, by wrapping or gilding it, or combine two or more objects, and their categories, histories, and material qualities intersect, sparking off unexpected associations. Because even the slightest transformation of an object can affect the associations it generates, patience, discipline and rigour are essential in executing the processes that brings about the transformation. 'Glow', my contribution to the 'Like Gold Dust' exhibition, sought to express the preciousness of gold through processes which involved an especially high degree of patience, discipline and rigour. The work was an installation of nearly 1,000 hand-gilded, standard light bulbs, each suspended by wire to create the appearance of a level plane approximately one metre above the gallery floor.
