St James Cloud Chamber

St. James, Piccadilly, London. Commissioners: Rebecca Hossack Gallery.

Made as a temporary installation in the sculpture garden of St. James. This quiet garden in the centre of London is a place of refuge for the homeless and a peaceful retreat for office workers. The sculpture therefore works as a silent meditative space as well as drawing attention to the needs of the homeless. I also made a fire cairn which was fuelled from wood taken from skips and worked as a bread oven and place to boil a kettle. The Cloud Chamber was made using a hazel basket frame clad with stone. It measured 2.4m wide by 2.1m high
