New piece

by Chantal

My ongoing LURE project is quite a time consuming piece so will be a long time till completion. With that in mind (because I’m a desperately impatient person) I am doing smaller works in parallel. I finished this piece a couple of weeks ago – it follows on from the pair of barometers I made a while back (see bottom image).

The series is born from a reflection on our fears that our future is beyond our prediction and control.
