These newly deconstructed and re-welded triangles are now my final piece for the degree show. After deciding that the previous shapes were unfinished, I went down to the metal workshops and started thinking of ways to improve them.

One element that made for successful pieces in the past was a spontaneous approach and because of this I avoided planning too much, instead believing the best route to be just start cutting. Using an angle grinder I ground off much of the paint I’d applied and removed chunks, lines and corners of each piece, reattaching them with a seeming randomness. The results are a variety of shapes, each with a clear geometric foundation but individually flawed or incomplete. These pieces give the impression of being mid change or development, as if they had glitched while transforming into a new and undiscovered shape. This line of thinking is encouraged by the varied finish, from matt black paint to silvery metallic.
