2013 - Royal Academy Summer Exhibition: Intersections - one of a series of cube forms. I leave the interpretation of the piece open. Perhaps the visitor could see it as a series of journeys or a 3D map of a city. The glass tubes bend the spaces and distort the geometry thus creating new vistas.
2013 - Cork Street Open: Hives’ compact spherical shape is constructed from a series of steel rings which strive to constrict the void within. I think it conveys a strong sense of claustrophobia. This maquette is the inspiration for three full scale pieces that will allow the audience to interact more closely with the work.
2009 - LG Head, permanent installation at Birmingham Arena.
2005 - WEEEMAN installation- commissioned by The Royal Society of Arts to create The Weeeman, A 7.2 metre high figure made from electronic and electrical equipment, designed to highlight the problems created through inappropriate disposal of WEEE (Waste Electronic and Electrical Equipment). This piece is on permanent display at The Eden Project in Cornwall.
