I work predominantly in sculpture and installation, creating work in response to my observations of people, objects and materials. I re-present objects, highlighting the vitality I see in them. A repetitive production process allows me the time and space to contemplate the material and work collaboratively with it to activate it in some way. In this case, the green plastic pots were used to replicate the feeling one gets when looking up, encircled by tall limbs in a pine forest. I used 1000 pots to represent the 1000 pine trees planted in each pine plantation in the surrounding districts of Mount Gambier, whilst looming in the background is a constant reminder of our everyday use of plastic. Surely, we can think of another material to plant our seedlings in.
