Copper pipe, thread, silk and paper cherry blossom, 2000, 100 x 200 x 300cm

Commissioned as a temporary site-specific work by the Aspex Gallery, Portsmouth as part of ‘Nothing But the Truth’.

Constructed on site at the gallery, the work uses shadows cast by the blossom petals to delineate a map of the cherry orchards thought to once exist at the location, temporarily restoring what was once made flat for mapping to three dimensions.
