Things Fall Apart ( 2017)  

Things Fall Apart is a column of mist mixed with a plant distress pheromone (methyl jasmonate) falling into a vast circular void – viewers could step beneath the vapour column using a viewing platform, soaking in the splendour of the work while simultaneously inhaling its disaster. Commissioned for Liveworks 2017









The Great Dying, 2016

Though it’s invisible, into the space the air of The Great Dying is being released. It is being released because you are there. The period known as “The Great Dying” occurred about 252.5 million years ago, and was the biggest extinction event in Earth’s history with as many as 90% of all species on land, and in the oceans dying out. The era coincides with radical changes to the air. It has low levels of oxygen, around half what we have today, and high levels of carbon dioxide. This air is unable to sustain the aerobic life that is familiar to us today.  The air has a subtle flavour of soda water, and a calming effect on the breath. The effects are subtle.

Commissioned for the Bristol Biennal - In Other Worlds, 2016
