Above: Jesmonite casts made with various metallic fillers and pigments, entitled 'Grip/Squeeze', were handed out during the event at which I exhibited 'Making Sense I' to give each viewer something to engage with physically while experiencing my work. This series of casts is the result of attempting to reproduce the action of subjecting a handheld mass of malleable clay to a simple process of transformation. The act of gripping and squeezing this material produced a unique object, which was then reproduced through casting in order to play with its materiality, weight, physicality and terms of interaction. It was particularly interesting to see how these casts, which exist as traces of my body’s movement and gestural capacity, were reacted to and experienced by the hands of others.
