/wʌndər/  is an attempt to share individual experiences of /wʌndər/ing and to explore the /wʌndər/ing experiences of others. The project collaborates with Olivia and Rosalind Wilson.

 

.1 was an installation of artworks, curated with found objects and memorabilia, produced in response to time spent in the region of Central America.

The work made reflected influences of Mayan culture and responses to travelling. For example, ‘Soap Diary’ documents the degradation of the soap bar through the ritual of washing; the perfume recalls the sterile environment of a cheap hotel room. I made deities, a SunShrine and monoliths echoing the Stelas of Copan,  made from polystyrene negatives of household appliances which emulate the concrete architecture found their today.
