‘Not every story can be told and many won’t feel relevant to a given project but as a working methodology we are interested in excavating these artefacts and assembling a new mythology out of fragments of the past.’ 


The symmetry of this composition creates a kind of coat of arms, a heraldic display, both convex and concave - a circularity is created. The separate elements are positioned in a way that is suggestive of movement, although here they are captured still. The wooden armatures were created by the artists, resembling a crooked leg or a folded arm, could be whether human or robotic, the limb-like objects as appendages.  

Details in this design include a 19th Century tatting shuttle used to make lace, found at Charnwood Museum in Loughborough town centre and a pyramid dice, a reminder of the sports technology centre visited by the artists, as well as the ephemera of childhood games and the notion of ‘chance’.

The small, white circles feature in two of the compositions and are designed to act like registration marks that act like a kind of punctuation in the new visual language created here.
