'Feather Hull'

‘Feather Hull’ as a body of work aims at drawing connections between the skeletal structures of creatures of flight and water with the industrially designed and built structures of airplanes and ships. The armature structure of ‘Feather Hull’ mimics that of an upturned ship’s hull but also alludes to a fish’s skeletal structure. The style of its construction is based on traditional bamboo fishing traps seen across Thailand and South East Asia. 'Feather Hull' was developed in Chiang Mai:Thailand in 2013 at Ne'Na Contemporary Art Space and exhibited at Skunkworks Gallery (2013) Sculpture at Sawmillers (2014) winner of the Harbour Sculpture outdoor prize (2014) and Sculpture in the Vineyards (2014).
