Float focuses on the two paradigms of engineering and the physical or organic. The fluidity and function of the organs as a beautiful machine, not something to be feared, is inherent in the sensuous form. The metaphysical, the idea of a transcendental and free creative spirit, beyond the physical confines of the brain, yet intrinsically connected, is symbolised in the delicately poised elements that float above the fluid mass. The relationship of the intangible and the physical aspects of the body are pivotal to this work and expressed as an integral and holistic bond.
