A deflated football the colour of chewed up bubblegum, unstable gym equipment, grinning apparatus; components, leftovers and spillages. Held here is an interest in the capacity of things to speak about and act out relations in a particular situation. Through the processes of making I look for a network of logic particular to the work itself, which impacts on its subsequent qualities and its capacity to engage with the world and people. Processes involving piecing, layering, repetition and framing and the use of graphic punctuation develop an improvisational structure tuned within the work, its material and its particular context.
