Swamp Geometry

Logic is remodelled and play shifts reality to create its parallel.

Hanging Garden
Planets; micro biospheres; floating worlds, earthed but suspended in an unstable horizon line. Within this world different realities are possible and proposed…other geologies and terrestrial phenomena; superstitions; playing with notions of the known.

The Additions and Substractions
A reverie; an accumulation of self; a constellation of temporary meaning. Sigmund Freud’s collection of antiquities comprised an unconscious archaeology, correspondences across history, externalisations of inner meanings.

Costumes
for a pataphysical theatre of crystallography and architecture. Pataphysics, the science of imaginary solutions.

Empty Sculptures
remodel space as repositories for fantasy or reality.

The Moon
Giovanni Riccioli, 16th Century Jesuit astronomer, named the lakes, seas, oceans and craters of the moon, endowing it with human poetics and emotions.
