Nervous Systems


Boxes: wood (elm, sweet chestnut), jesmonite, rubber, resin, paint, lyrcra, buttons, toilet paper, gold leaf)

Stands: Skirting board, recycled ashtray stand, spindles, paint

I began working on these boxes during a quiet period to test some making ideas, develop some woodworking skills, and also as a means of dealing to some anxieties. I'd been thinking a bit about the relationship between the mind and the gut and reading a little about cognitive science. 


The stands supporting the boxes were fabricated with the assistance of the Glasgow Visual Artist and Craft Maker Bursary and the works were documented by Isobel Lutz Smith.
