( interior view ) . A tower made from donated paperbacks - mainly Romantic novels that have titles like 'Confessions of a Vicars wife' and 'Cold heart Canyon'. They have been formed bricklike into a rectangular tower which stands about 1.80 high. Looking through the windows you can see the pages of the books have been roughly carved to look a bit like flat stones or an ancient ruin..
Living in central London as I do we all live in or walk past huge tower blocks every day. But what do we know about the people who live in all the flats? Peoples lives in which so many major and minor events, joys and sorrows are contained. References to archaeology and ancient cultures run right through my work, also looking through and behind the surfaces of things. I aim to provide a link between contemporary life and the distant past.
