Details of Work 

Spectrum One and Two is a work that continues my interest in metal craft and object making specifically as it relation to light and the build environment on a domestic scale. The underlying motive for this work was to begin to approach the question of how one might build a rainbow, hence the development into colourMade from hand machined and anodised aluminium, the work explores the potential for simple domestic forms, such as shelves, to function as sculptural objects. One key challenge in the work was to develop a light driven work that could exist in all levels of domestic light, from full daylight to darkness, without compromising its sculptural affect. The language of box and louver answered this as well as producing a formal intrigue of inside and out.
