Semi-Semiotic Map (Performative research, Nunnery Gallery 2016) Visitors to Nunnery Gallery were asked to hold an elastic band any way they wanted, and photographed, an investigation of the complexity of something seemingly simple. The resulting 200+ images were arranged in a semi-semiotic arrangement, where shape starts to look like language.

PREFAB-LAB, Bath Arts Festival 2016 An experimental residency/ exhibition investigating the role of research in fine arts. To the left, a project where I cast elastic band knots (found, made and supplied by visitors) in plaster and arranged them according to an evolution of shape. Right, a Lego-like DIY construction set for making knots; copied sections of hairband knots in reinforced foam with looped ends that can be connected together.
