“My work seeks to unlock the geometry of everyday life. Recognising that we are surrounded and yet often oblivious to the ubiquity of geometry, my work seeks to re-engage its audience with the mathematics of life: the recurrent patterns of the material world. Here are two pieces: one an example of a traditional pin and another which requires imagination as to how it is pinned to the garment.”
