Soft Sculpture, Performance, 2020
Men-an-Tol is a sculptural piece created through research into private land ownership, and the environmental degradation that can be caused by this. If there was a shared interest and ownership, opposed to a private desire to capitalise, would ecological wellbeing be a greater priority? The work explores how landscape and geographical features can be translated into pieces, using interactive soft sculptures to encourage an audience to enact common use and ownership of a shared resource. By making natural materials a prominent part of the work, does this emphasise the process of turning nature into product, and reduce alienation from our environments?
