The work is influenced by utopian architecture and thought which stems from an interest in the fact that visions of utopia are by definition impractical, impossible dreams. A Utopia or an ‘Ideal state’ offers an alternative vision of the future whilst drawing on the past and commenting critically upon the present. The work takes the form of aspirational models which have somehow fallen short of their intended purpose; from momentous semi-architectural  totems to strange anthropomorphic archetypes that seem to have mutated or evolved slightly wrongly. The installation will serve simultaneously as a proposal for an ‘ideal state’ - a utopian model - and at the same time an abandoned vision - a social and artistic graveyard.
