PSEUDOARCHAEOLOGIES14 November 2013
This photographic series is a very recent development in my practice and arose from experimentation whilst making bodily-like excretions in plaster for the Incorporation series.
The candy coloured plaster faeces exist as actors, lying on a bed of ash collected from a waste disposal facility at a defunct industrial site. Sometimes the actors arrange themselves randomly, like scattered pebbles on a beach, whilst other times they mimic the labyrinthian floor plans of department stores, shopping malls, theme parks and videogames such as pac-man.
