Eggshell Finish


I needed a symbolic form that would evolve and change though time as it is bleached by the sun, scoured by the wind and rain and below the waterline accrues algae, worm and barnacles; an evolving form that echoes changes to the surrounding landscape itself and turns the egg into a natural calendar of the seasons.

Inside, my own journey will be catalogued in collections of  digital imagery, found objects, drawings, maps and natural colour that are all derived from this particular estuary location. During the next twelve months the egg will evolve, until it becomes a sculptural element in a time based happening, integrating inside with outside in a creative archive that reduces the distance between people and nature.


Local colour made from sawdust created during the construction of the Egg at Battramsley Farm and used to paint interpretations of how the Egg might look when completed.
