Sculpture at Bathers 2020
This work continue my exploration of the process of coral bleaching and discolouration and the parallels this draws with our society's attachment to technology and social media. More than ever our disengagement, distance and disconnection with nature and with our own emotion is growing. This wor is about connection and disconnection.
The more we stay connected the wider the gap with our identity becomes, yet nature has a way of re-conquering and repossessing lost abandoned places and reinventing itself.
In the figures the top part of the head, where the brain resides, is bleached and in the shape of a coral, as if a mutation is taking place.
