The Industrial Age
The human treadmill of the industrial age. No matter how hard we work, in a dilution of making life easier, we are forever treading the mill to nowhere. The giant tap excretes the blood and flesh of human desire. The aluminium bicycle wheel and brass tap symbolise the industrial age, which we can never escape. The white drip and human figure are made from Sculpty clay, but reflect the symbolic permanence of stone, much in the same way as Plensa used polyester resin in ‘Looking into my dream’ (2012).
