Temporary Landscape No.1 is a form of sculptural graffiti that is left among a landscape waiting to be found, moved, destroyed or collected. The pallet is made in 2 parts, which connect together visually but remain detached from one another. One has a tracking device to monitor its whereabouts or locate and the other does not.

The wooden shipping pallet has no home, constantly in transit or at rest it is the unsung hero disregarded in alleyways when it is not transporting goods from one place to another.  It has become invisible, part of the collective urban and rural detritus. Its dualistic life span of having value when serving its purpose and its worthless abandonment when not creates a paradoxical existence.

 

My current work explores issues of globalization, migration and climate change through the lens of the liminal. Materials, images and objects reflecting concepts of liminality visually demonstrate transition and transformation - the visible and the invisible – the seen and unseen. Our cultural landscapes are becoming increasingly crisscrossed and blurred through shifting borders and boundaries – the paradoxical grey area that exists between one side and another. The notion of 'space' and 'place' occurs in conjunction with ideas of the 'temporary' and 'permanent' creating a play between the real and the unreal - betwixt and between.
