Traditionally sculpture creates three-dimensional form through techniques that reduce a material’s size such as chiselling or carving in order to produce a permanent structure. Reversing this, my work uses the process of inflation to construct temporary shape. During the course of ascension and descension these fabric envelopes remain unpredictable in identity, evading consistency even when flat. Through investigating the potential of volume, the semi-permanence of these objects is highlighted in the before, the during and the after.
