A series of sculptural forms baked out of bread. The resultant structures are then photographed outdoors in London parks and other public space and left for animals to eat. The forms are derived from observation of bones, brambles and tree branches, playing with asymmetry and structure.
Working with dough necessitates a certain loss of control, the proving process mutates any initial form, and structure has to be created during the baking process by a series of props in the oven. A positive aspect of working with bread is the role chance and organic process play in determining the shape. As materials go it does not really get any cheaper, and due to my current working/living situation I began experimenting with dough.
I have been interested in Taoist philosophy for many years, and this profoundly un-taoist, taoist title came from a joke made in discussion with a friend about approaches to artistic decision making.
