The Reading Pod

  • 2012 / Steel, book pages, handmade glue, string, found wood / size variable

The Reading Pod is an intimate space to explore and celebrate reading, writing and expression. Visitors to the pod are invited to explore, respond and contribute to it with their own dreamings and reflections. A communication exchange happened within this environment, an exchange of thoughts and ideas between the visitors that grow the artwork. This interactive sculpture plays with the aesthetic appeal of words and images from recycled books. Reading and writing are essentially solo ventures that are shared through this quiet reflective communication vessel.

  • Exhibited at the National Gallery of Victoria – International Sculpture Garden / Artplay / Albury Library Museum – Write Around the Murray Festival Artist in Residence / Yarra Sculpture Gallery – Winter Residency
