Causeway I 2016

My piece Causeway was inspired by the creation myth of the Giants Causeway in Ireland. In this work I explore my own myths about the endless possibilities of the journeys along the pathways of life. In theory these journeys can lead anywhere we choose along the causeway of our own life. Though in practice it can seem unclear as to how much of this journey is our choice as it can be altered by factors outside our control. It could well be that it is our own perception of these detours which actually determine whether they send us off course or not. In a more ever complex fast moving world I would like this piece to lead the viewer into their own pathway of an exploration of their sole. To act as a diversion from the continuous pressures and influences of messages that bombard us from the news, marketing and social media and realise we are still human.
