This piece was created during the “Working Title” residency at Aspex Gallery in Portsmouth, August 2011. The aim of the project was to turn public donations of unwanted items into artwork...The work’s individual elements had been deemed no longer useful (plastic bottles without lids, assorted mismatched tent poles, carpet backing), but I attempted to rescue these things from oblivion, even if only for a short while. The structures I created were hazy, shadowy things, hovering in the crevices between use, misuse and disuse, which is why I named them "Ghosts".
