Tiny Bugs, Mid-Rotation and Loosen were installed in a site-specific and time-specific configuration in St James Hatcham Church. A false ceiling/light box whirls overhead, drumming a rhythm in metal and sand. A stationary mirror/snare drum sits in precariousness on the wall, a lens inviting observation. The gruesome creak of a motor jerks a bass drum/slinky puller upwards and downwards. The ground is smooth yet rough, glossy pool sprinkled with grains of lead filings/sand. 

Special thanks to Albie, Joan, Lalin, Peter Mackenzie and Nicky Donald.

Shown at Fine Art Degree Show 2017, Goldsmiths, University of London from 17th to 19th June.
