These images below are ‘in progress’ where I have been incorporating motors. I have combined unusual materials including carpet gripper with in this piece.
Oil Rig or Platforms
I have begun to create oil rig type structures or ‘platforms’, exploring the idea that they could become redundant in the future, and also an awe of their intricate structure. They are colossal and most are decommissioned. However some are for sale:
“Well-maintained 20-room platform for sale. Panoramic sea views and a Heli deck.”
“If it is not purchased, the North Sea drilling platform will have to be decommissioned and disassembled by the current owners.”
This really interests me, and I have begun to create kinetic models using low-fi materials. Combined with the low-fi materials are also bronzes, and fine porcelain with gold lustres and gilded elements. It creates a juxtaposition between the materials.

In this exhibition, Papasian Wood collaborate by creating a piece titled Consumerist Culture involving a rock climbing wall and colourful ceramic plinths. It incorporates bright lights and glossy surfaces that reflect the slick façade of contemporary society.
