When we explore objects, we look for clues of expression from the maker and object – actions, scenes and events that are visible within its construction. Investigating a moment in time to build imaginary scenarios of how the object was made, what it is made from, the making environment and the thoughts of the maker, we construct a narrative from its characteristics. My work investigates how implied movement within an artwork can provide the viewer with a shared experience of the past making event. The process of making performed in this work follows a procedure of repetition, compression and cut. This approach deliberately builds tension in the forms, adding a level of uncertainty about the outcome, and leaving the material and process to decide the output.
