2015


Stemming from a lifetime of memories accumulated while flying in Papua New Guinea and Australia, this work examines the emotional landscape experienced during flight. The colours of the skyspace, the exhilaration of the action, and the feeling of simply inhabiting the air all combine to create a range of emotions. The geometric steel forms portray the molecular structures of the neurochemicals responsible for these feelings. This work seeks to recapture the sense of fantasy and childhood wonder associated with flight.
