Principles of Site

Site. Systems. Principles.
Boundaries. Structures

This site-responsive installation is comprised of fabricated ‘structures’ and ‘objects’ installed and assembled in an attempt to expose the space as genuinely as possible. Coinciding with the intention to reference other systems of ‘making’ through the materiality of the objects. Responding to the physical boundaries and characteristics of the space and constructing new forms by interrupting the pre-existing conditions of the site, these new conditions warrant a response too.

A continuous process of responding, removal and replacement in many forms. The word ‘Principle’ in relation to the materials used is crucial, meaning the physical qualities or values of the materials, the functional or associative principles of the materials and lastly the basic idea or rule that explains how something happens or works. Together these explanations in relation to the materiality of the objects are co-existing and functioning together to reference other systems of ‘making’.

These systems within architecture, construction, engineering, block-laying and sculpting similarly construct space and are all being referenced throughout the processes and forms taken on by wood, plaster, steel and high-density foam. These materials all have a symbiotic relationship, they either have structural, functional or aesthetic inter-reliance on one another whilst activating the site they inhabit.
