A freestanding kinetic sculpture made from two reclaimed electric stairlifts, customised to run continuously in a dissonant sequence up and down two spiral tracks supported on a fabricated frame.
This work was originally made for my degree show at Glasgow School of Art, where it was damaged in the Mackintosh Building fire in 2014. It has since been fully restored and repaired.
In 2016 this work was shown at & Model North in Leeds - a new art space made available through collaboration between & Model Gallery and North Brewing Co.
