Somewhere Else

Description

Hanging installation (3.2x2.0m) of rice paper cast suspended with nylon string. Rice paper cast was made by layering edible rice paper (for spring rolls) over a clay mould of the same size. A space 2m long is left at the end of the installation for viewers to look back at the work in its entirety. This piece was inspired by the sea and how it gave me solace by representing the spectrum of emotions people cycle through - frustration, confusion and then calm - when waves crash, roll and cruise softly all at once. As people walk through the corridor, the thick, messily layered and chaotic fragments of rice paper unite into one sheet that eventually thins and calms down first, and then breaks up again at the end. I chose the material to emulate but not imitate the sea as I wanted to create a physical, tangible environment that was surreal yet somehow familiar, one that appeals directly to the visceral side of people.
