Work & Play

A key interest for my practice is exploring through being active, constructing works where participants contribute to this formation. Taking inspiration from temporary structures and play, I responded to the rules by creating an interactive piece within the context of 'festival' and the Maltings' history. I was interested in 'festival' as a place of 'collective joy' where people come together to 'let go'. The role of The Maltings has transformed through its history from a place of work to one of play. This is a pattern people may be familiar with in their daily lives, transferring from a world of work into an activity or place of escapism.
