Human anatomy is so complex.
How can we believe and indeed embody the images of medical science when in reality, all we know of our interior is formed by intimate, ephemeral, physical and emotional sensations and our imagination?
Currently I am interested in the hand-making skills and keen observation of the individuals responsible for representing human anatomy throughout history - the people and the processes that have given it form.
In my experience a life is made up transient sensations that focus our awareness inside and my challenge is to bring this to an object to be worn on the surfaces of a body.
My recent work is made of styrene- a material common to model-makers. I have developed ways of forming this neutral white plastic that are akin to certain glass-glowing and lamp-working techniques.

Happy new year to you too Catherine. I can't quite do this thing so will ask the publicist for Random House who did my book to put up my images. No broadband here but managed to do this somehow.
Thanks so much for joining. Its only early, and its great to have some brave souls kick it all off.
There is lots of stuff you can do on kit and caboodle (yep, all my kids have terrible names too) - put images, news and events up, ask/answer stuff in the forums, join a group, chat will be happening sometime soon, and yes, you can even pimp your page.
Just remember kit and caboodle is a public network, its aim is promotional, so be sure to only put up personal details that you are comfortable with. There are privacy and email options in the settings.
Anytime you have a problem, or cant work something out, let me know.
