by Angela Read


Work made from discarded aluminium drinks cans which have been manipulated into an origami shape (the Fortune Teller). These multiple shapes have been assembled using wire to make a 3d structure. The cans eventual state of dejection along with its brief history as receptacle and the variety of surface graphics designed to seduce the eye all appeal to me. The work is processed based using ritualised methods to articulate ideas involving decay, renewal, consumption, repetition and change. They also reflect my interest in structures and structures that grow like fractals and capsids.
