Pressure

"Pressure" is a site-responsive work staged in a gallery in a former factory. The copper pipes respond to the exposed plumbing in the building and seek to reproduce the mechanics of the building in concert with the mechanics of a life form. From the pipes are suspended hundreds of fibre threads woven through sod, supporting the living grass in the air. The work initially had a small performative element where I intended to be in the gallery space daily to spritz the grass with water, keeping it alive. However, this tending labour was taken over by folx in the gallery space almost immediately, making the work far more interesting.
