Something about the breaking sound that seems to say stick me back together. It doesn't really say how though. Smashing really, or maybe smashing reality.

More scenes from the London Riots. No real connection with football although when I was kid that's where most of the riots started. Like with the coconuts piece I really just wanted a fairly innocent enclosure for a more dramatic spurt of energy. Kind of cracking the atom.

These are all the sculptures together. They can be arranged in a grid or randomly and can be spaced any distance apart or in any combination or pairing. They could be seen on plinths or at floor level. It would be great to see them in a variety of spaces. Each one carries a small globe or world so that when people walk between them they appear to be orbiting or moving in unison.

Some parts of Our Cosmic Burden have been made with pairs in mind. Its just the way that things work out sometimes with ideas. It seems easier to work on more than one piece at a time and for some reason one starts influencing the other so you find yourself trying to balance them out. A sort of conceptual interdependancy. Its not like they cant ever be seperated though. They are like the other figures in the piece. They could be viewed together or seperately. Its kind of nice to think of sculptural pieces being independant and having a character of their own. Their relationship to other pieces then becomes a developing thing within itself.

This is possibly the first photo that I have of them all together. There are 16 of them and they can be exhibited in any format really but normally I didn't envisage them so crowded together. Pushing them together though makes it look like a protest meeting which is rather nice.
Had a photo session a couple of weeks ago with Matt Page taking the photos in a studio session so will be posting a variety of them over the next few weeks.

Many years ago whilst I was a Foundation student I created a sculpture that was some stairs that started in a pit and then ended in mid air. In some ways I saw it as a fold away sculpture in that if you folded the top half away it would snuggly fo back into the ground. Maybe it came from being a boy scout and when you dug a fire pit you always hung onto the turf to replant over the patch where the fire had been when you had finished with it.

The start of something that could be quite big. The indications are that the one thing is pointing to another. Kind feels like it could be pointing towards a window.
