Essentially a Shack

some pictures of my final piece from Wimbledon Foundation... a little wooden one room house based on an abandoned home I found in the Isle of Lewis.
- it doesn't make a huge amount of sense in pictures, but the main themes around the project was to create an experiential piece for the audience, based around the idea that an abandoned house is like the detritus of a performance.
and influenced by trying to trying to understand the phenomenology of space, interests in utilitarian and fleeting architecture, and they way we translate and interpret spaces.
- i gathered the patchwork of materials by trawling front gardens and charming builders in tooting and wimbledon, pushing them to college on a an old newspaper trolley and built it in the studio onto building palettes

pear-shaped 3. colloq. (chiefly Brit., orig. R.A.F. slang). to go (also turn) pear-shaped: to go (badly) wrong, to go awry.

why is pear-shaped such a bad thing? why can't it be beautiful...
i'm going to champion the pearshaped

I might try again..

I have the summer ahead of me and a year of foundation behind, so i may try and document the things I have done and am doing on here over the summer...
So far I only have a list; it includes.. making a dolls house, a triptych of drawings for my sisters new house, a Brighton Carnival and the re-installation of my final piece at foundation.
