I perceive my role as an artist to be a communicator through objects. I am moved and motivated by social issues and this project is a visualisation of my research into abuse in childhood. ‘Otherlings’ refers to the displacement and isolation felt by the victims. I have sought to capture the bleak and desolate atmosphere of the acute situation experienced by so many children.
Exploring glass as an art material, I wanted to transect art and technology by fusing digital media with traditional craft processes. The glass sculptures have been created using photogrammetry, 3D printing and lost wax casting.
