The Numb Scrapbook consists of a life-sized makeshift hourglass (Ambidextrous Time Piece) and a series of modified plastic plants (horror-romance). The hourglass is a maximalist collage constructed from two modified wooden plant stands, a 24m bore water pump electrical cord, ribbons/bows, clothing tags, physio balls, toys and green fairy lights embedded in liquid nails. I’ve collaged and combined these artificial materials in an intuitive and affect driven manner. I’m interested in the way materials and objects can create portals to experience. The Numb Scrapbook attempts to map and stack a range of fragmented sensory experiences, to a level of intensity, that begins to initiate their own decay, death and collapse. I’m interested in the potential of these states to emulate an awareness (and foreboding) of the precarious moments that we all live in.
