Overwhelm

Working with Staffordshire County Council, I created a natural installation within the original holding cell beneath the Shire Hall's preserved court room. 

In the eerie space, I installed a mannequin covered in reindeer moss, silk cocoon pods and handcrafted Milliput and clay lichen forms. The piece was inspired by the everyday feeling of overwhelm, representing the feeling as a physical growing form, engulfing the body completely.
