Arachnoids and Octapods
Situated in a post-apocalyptic and dystopian world, this practice illustrates the dialogue between biological and mechanical, microcosmic and macrocosmic, natural and artificial space.
As a metaphor, the Found objects assemblage is an exploration of the form as a result of connecting two contrasting systems. When the antithetical functions of the objects converge, it is suggested that the 'new species' are capable to adapt into new environments.
Arachnoids have been exhibited in London Science Museum ( Living Machines 2013 ) , Mission Gallery (Convergence 2013) - Swansea, Colony 2015 - Port Talbot, Art Space - Cardigan, W.C.F.F.S.T.Y. Undegun - Wrexham and Arcade Campfa (Intersection 2019) - Cardiff.
