Progress of work

The process of replicating an image from a photograph furthers my exploration of images as metaphors, symbols or signs. The act of tracing from a photograph exaggerates the idea of substitution or a “supplement” and a continuous transformation and adaptation in its ‘meaning’. The old grotto from the grounds of Strathmore, seems misplaced in a transformed function of Strathmore as a music, arts and education center. This de-contextualized object (grotto) is deconstructed by processes of tracing (supplementation), displacement (the dualities of outside and inside) and re-contextualization (the installation being site-specific).
