‘Home and Away’ – a new sculpture in my Home series created in response to the notion that our perception of the planet needs reconfiguring to that of our home, not a just a resource to be plundered.
This is just one of the new sculptures to be shown at PR1 Gallery, Preston 8-2
This simulation shows how the flying birds will be projected onto the wall – flying between the sculpture and an antique bird cage.
The story of this piece unfolds below…
