‘We often find that when you look at an object they are able to articulate things that humans cannot. A philosophy of design and production, of place and time, is embodied in each and every one.’

This second composition is a strange kind of landscape, with details including the plastic lid of a cup, a speech bubble post-it note, chewing gum and a mobile phone case.

The plastic nails and chain resemble a windmill turbine, making reference to the town’s iconic BRUSH Factory. The knitting needles are for cable stiches and make references to industrious textiles manufacture as well as knitting circles, community activity and socialising. There are two pairs of callipers, found in the bell foundry used to test the tone of the bells.

The reoccurring grid systems, made of building materials as well as the brightly coloured shins used as ‘spacers’, resemble civic architectural detail found in towns and cities.
