Originally part of a proposal for a show (which was refused) at the local town Arts Center. I decided to go ahead with this central piece anyway and display it outside the studio.

Foundation preparation

Working on foundations of In Our Minds

South Westerly gales blowing off the ocean and over the lake whip out anything that isn´t firmly anchored. The ¨weaving¨ is fallen leaves from a nearby Cordyline tree.

Initial idea

Sketch for In Our Minds

Years before I´d scribbled the idea for this piece to make from old fencing wire I´d acquired. It was one of those sketches which would persist in popping up from time to time, despite my efforts to ignore it.
