Sculpture for the Blind
Paper, Textiles, Wire
Everyday we are surrounded by a wealth of tactile sensory information - the sedate warmth of the midday sun, the inviting softness of a cotton dress, the brush of a wisp of hair against your face. But frequently, in our frenzied lives, flooded by flickering banners and glossy adverts, we take away nothing more than fleeting images.
In this world, images and textures fuse in to one - pictures crinkled and fold into intricate textures, tactile velvets and denims curl and unfurl to reveal a graceful line. A strip of floral cotton twists into a braid, then joins a piece of lace in a lively twirl. Indeed, this is a sculpture for those who are blind to images, and those who have been blinded by them.
