The first piece in a new series of full scale figures. It is based on the life cast of a 28 year old man and is the continuation of a project that began in 2004 with HUSH , an installation about the fragility of human wellbeing and the relationship between growth and decay.
The surface and core of the body were formed by soldering together hundreds of etched brass leaves to form a self supporting filigree. The leaves are treated with acid and heat to break down the shininess of the brass and leave a richly distressed patina.
