Internal Tourist

A four-week journey of discovery attempting to imitate a Bronze-Age mold-making technique. Made possible through a Royal Scottish Academy award for a residency at Scottish Sculpture Workshop, Aberdeenshire, I proposed to make a series of forms that investigated the unseen, both in spatial and material terms, from a horse dung, sand and clay mixture. During the residency I researched more about and experimented with this material, forming it over stacked cardboard forms, joining certain forms together, then firing them in a sawdust kiln. Most of the materials were sourced locally, and in the case of the horse dung, dug up from a local farmer's field. The residency culminated with an exhibition, Internal Tourist, at Left Bank Gallery, Tarland in June.
