Embracing the underdog

Mixed media sculpture (items chewed by dogs)

I am interested in the use of social media as another platform through which to collect items for my work. I put out a call for items ‘Sculpted by dogs’ and people posted me their pets creative chewed entries for a dog art prize. The winners piece would be cast in bronze.  

 These items were presented on bespoke museum style stands alongside a public judging performance held in China town, as part of the year of the dog celebrations. The public were invited to vote for their favourite sculpture. 

 It is through these humorous platforms I am developing ideas and working out new methods of combining performance and technical making .
