Following a process of walking and collecting, these small sculptures are constructed from the wreckage of car accidents found in the streets surrounding my Brisbane studio, as well as during recent projects in Berlin and Melbourne. Each sculpture records an accident either discovered or witnessed. Individual sculptures in this series are exhibited on a flat base, marked with a topographic 'mud map' record of the corresponding accident site.
