This is an untitled piece made from moss, chicken wire and thick thread. Finlay and I gathered moss and it has been stored outside for the past few days to keep it fresh and green. I made a structure from chicken wire and sewed the moss onto it using the thick thread. I then attached this 'mossy-stalactite' to a light fitting on the ceiling using invisible beading thread which is strong but enables the sculpture to appear weightless, almost floating.
I feel that this piece would be suitable for exhibiting, despite its short life, within a white gallery space such as the concourse gallery in Byam Shaw. I will experiment with display further when I am able to.

I have been constructing a yurt since September 2009 in a collaboration with my boyfriend Finlay Simpson, a carpenter. It is being presented for assessment at Byam Shaw school of art and will be exhibited in the Concourse Gallery at Byam Shaw in January, and hopefully other exhibitions within the University of the Arts London.
