Surgical Pins and Driftwood / 2017
Title:Rib Cage

Pieced together from bone-like material deposited absentmindedly on shores, Rib Cage adopts an impossible task. Surgical Pins are used to attach each piece of driftwood together but to no avail; the pins usually implemented to help heal bones instead display a hopeless optimism. The pins themselves penetrate the space, protecting and incasing simultaneously.

The ribcage is a bone structure that protects our vital organs and an important part of how we breath, yet here the surgical pins suggest an eerily painful presentation of our personal ‘cages’. The role of protector and predator combine, the dualisms of life and death amalgamate.
