I wanted my art to re-introduce texture into our internal (physical / mental ) environments.
My love for all these activities binds this practice together:
- Music introduces texture into our environments – intentional texture… we take sound and re-mould it.
- Our unintentional sounds of living (see John Cage’s anechoic chamber) are re-organised. The content exists but we re-shape it.
- Climbing requires one to observe and to feel the surface texture of objects. I will often, even when not climbing, find myself exploring the grooves of rock surfaces. Are they smooth or rough? Have they slowly been eroded or are their edges sharp to the touch?
