Synthesis

Synthesis: a process which combines together two or more pre-existing elements resulting in the formation of something new

This is the basis for these forms, made from two to three relatively simple lines, synthesised to create highly complex and intricate forms.

The process of creating these forms is completely organic. Outcomes are down to experimentation of line manipulation: a small movement of one of the building blocks can completely change the structure and shape. The journey of creating the forms is one of exploration and intrigue.

The viewer also goes through a process of exploration and intrigue in defining what the form means to them. In the main, responses allude to anatomical illustrations and the documentation of living ­organisms.

The style has a modern twist on natural history encyclopedias, where species are removed from their native environment and technically represented on sterile white for the purposes of documentation and study.
