Sushi mountain towards a great divide.
This work for me emerged from my experiences in a fully open plan 3 level studio space made for 100 artists to use at any given time, you share tables and chairs when you were not on a set residency program.
My interest in the concept of the great divide of personal and shared space - the lack of walls around peoples studio spaces had a huge impact. My attention came back to peoples behaviours and the divides they put around themselves or which formed due to natural differences likes and dislikes.
Whilst co-running the Frohsinnberg Projekt ARI in 2008, it gave way for the perfect site specific installation with awful feng shui - columms breaking up rooms and beams jutting out .... a perfect space for a work about divides. I created a work called Fortune Mountain, 2m felted sculpture crossed between fortune cooky and mountain (must upload a photo).
