Unit 11 was my most challenging and most successful piece of work to date.

Achieving the accurate joints and weight distribution of  each angle took an immense amount of planning and preparation prior to installing this piece of work.

Although the install wasn’t as straight forward as one would have liked, eventually in the long run the preparation and planning paid off.

This piece of work really focused on the space in which the piece of work was built. Originally I had initially planned the work to be much higher, the platform above the door in the studio space I was given. Logistically as I began planning it was unfeasible in the time given and far too risky in terms of the struts being able to hold themselves against the angled joints.

The installation was designed to invite people in and around the structure, making the focus the unusual joints between the floor and the wall.

Another feature was the vivid red on the right side of the struts. The audience entered the studio from the left side of the installation meaning they were not aware of any colour until they came to the far side of the installation or studio.
