Safe Deposits/Little Deaths
1989 Central St Martins

We all need little deaths to move forward. This installation (a small detail shown here) was the culmination of five years of return to study as a mature student. An introspective piece, quiet and calm using different elements to evoke particular feelings: set in a blue circle on the floor, the colour of light; several stacks of shelves containing cast wax houses, repositories for thoughts; cast words as reminders; amulets of blue lead to help the changing; a multitude of ritual.
