Art in Salcey Forest - initial exhibition

May 10th 2008-May 2009, Salcey Forest, Northamptonshire.

Body weave III

Made with a weave I developed while studying spiders weaving their webs, Body weave III (copper wire) hangs below a branch as though on an invisible hammock, exploring the notion from quantum physics that we are energy/space rather than solid matter. At the same time this figure - ephemeral and almost invisible against the forest canopy, occassionally clearly there depending on the light and weather - explores the idea of a mythical forest creature, a denizen of the forest as seen/imagined by our ancestors.
