The book of the show

Some drawings done for the booklet for the show, named " implosion" . Some back story as well as other pieces of ephemera and writing. A fun read...I hope.

Those corals and other stuff

Pic from the install with those cyclopean corals in the foreground and some other stuff going on. Reading the nummulosphere along with H.P lovecrafts "Call of Cthulhu "  started off the idea of making the sedimentary island in the foreground, in the end we called it R'leh  after Lovecrafts ancient submerged city but in the weird taxonomy of the show it could be a number of things. Thanks to Sam for sticking all the spikes on..

Making the nummulosphere

Randolf Kirkpatrick may have imagined  all the rock in the world came from the sea, but I started making my nummulosphere like a coracle. There has been an excessive amount of time spent ripping laminates for this work and the log flume one also. I used tawa, which bends really nicely.

Log flume model

Clamping got underway on this construction a couple of months ago, still going on this one, adding laminates. It's for a work based on designs by Victor schauberger who built log flumes, and other devices which may have worked but are now thought of as pseudo-science.

Water testing

In our previous show,  Deep Sea Discomedusae (see below...)  we d always intended to do more works which explored pseudo scientific observations , which is in part what's been added to the new show. Observations around water and its movements have played a big part in this. This is an early test of a water pump for a new work in the show. Pretty basic really..
