Borrowed building materials, sound, cherry blossom, 2000, 100 x 120 x 300cm

Temporary site-specific work commissioned by Aspex Gallery, Portsmouth.

The Aspex Gallery, Brougham Rd, was a former chapel. The site has had many differing uses over the past two centuries. One role may have been as a shelter for homeless and evacuated civilians during World War 2. The tower marked the passing of time with a bell chime every quarter of an hour.
