Commission for The Harris Museum, Preston, Lancashire.
This project was a commission for The Harris Museum in Preston, Lancashire, for their shop.
I created 10 scent bottles, 5 yellow with the image of a Lancashire rose sandblasted on the body of the bottle. The second half of the collection included a blue bottle with a simple stopper which included an image of the Preston city crest.
Unease is a collaboration project between myself and Musician, Con Daniels. This project explored my relationship with mental health. 5 blown glass objects were paired with 5 audio tracks. Each piece of audio had a different level of distortion which corresponded with the level of distortion on the surface of the glass. The manipulation on the glass is caused by external forces, which is similar to many experiences living with mental health as external forces have a massive impact on day to day life.

Parts One & Two
19Hz is a collaborative project between myself and Con Daniels. This project was in two parts.
Part One consisted of 5 vessels, with varying levels of surface texture. The texture and colour gets more intense to a peak, then decreases; following the form of an anxiety attack. Each is paired with an audio track using a different frequency which refers to the stage of the sequence.
Part Two consisted of an installation of tactile objects, with the intention of the viewer experiencing a sense of unease upon touching. This was paired with an audio track that used 19hz as a frequency which is meant to affect the brain in a manner that is unpleasant.
