Settle is a work from a place of remembering, a way of working through a loaded memory. A trembling web of black mesh scatters the ashes of a one-held thought, against a backdrop of musical and non-musical sound and dualities of black and white. When a thought is degraded, it does not just fade away – instead, it is filtered through the other experiences that accompany it. The movement of the hovering net, animated by vibrating motors, marks the gradual process of an entity being broken down, and reconstituted in a cumulus of a new form. The traces of a memory once lost, born again in a second life, a new body.

Shown at We are Porous Bodies (group exhibition) in Goldsmiths, University of London, in June 2014.
