Made using material originally used for my degree show piece of four years ago, the material has been through several incarnations: a crude copy of Corbusier’s Cabanon, modular studio storage system, a proposal for a monument to Factory Records, to a fluorescent placard wielding type piece, and now a hastily constructed seating zone -  a series of large sculptures on wheels, crudely carpeted in primary colour carpet offcuts which  serve as the location for a series of small meetings, discussions and workshops within Meter Room.

Unsure as to whether the material is providing ever diminishing returns as a constant rehash of ideas from a more interesting former self, or a necessary fixation with trying to find an objective within the work via constant recycling, intends the piece to set the scene for discussions and collaborations with others as part of The Archive.
