Homunculi and wrecks from the robotic future
Most of the last year I was poring over new ideas for statues and installations. I took to my sketchbooks and fathomed some of them – just to come to the obvious insight that I always will have to trundle along the basic lines, seeing what comes along while doing it. One of the unpleasant facts of exhibiting work like this is the tendency of people to try and touch. This led me to the idea of incorporating a barrier into the whole concept, glass tubes and other paraphernalia of the laboratory atmosphere from which the original concept comes.
