Thinking Forward In Reverse

Thinking Forward In Reverse
Reconfigured seven metre wooden ladder with charred surface.

This sculpture references the ever constant shift in life, and acknowledgement that each decision we make is the outcome of a complex process that usually involves two different kinds of thinking, looking backwards to understand the past, and looking forward to predict the future.

This work was first shown in the 12ft x 8ft Black Box Gallery at UCA. 

The deconstruction and re-configuration of the ladder removes it's  functionality to focus on its inherent qualities as a universal symbol and to locate the sculpture within a confined space, where the space became integral to the work and where the viewers standpoint was dictated.
