Installation research for the Graduate Show at York St John, 6th to 14th of June. I have been trying to include gravity and pressure into the stack of papers, to emphasize the 'dust to dust' idea of the composted remnants of lives which are excavated at the Hungate Archaeological dig. I didn't want it to be a downtrodden feeling so I wanted to take the viewers eye upwards to the future. I feel I finally achieved this with the plumb line and weight creating this space between the objects.
The stack of paper years will be displayed next to a table with a working set up, highlighting the process human labour be it papermaking, archaeology, research or history.
