Earthen.  The Iron Age peat bog bodies buried for thousands of years is an ongoing investigative project.  Interested in the properties of peat and its preservative qualities I experimented by burying paper in the ground to record the natural composting and deterioration which occurs.  By digging these up and arranging them into artworks the indexical reference to their origins is questioned.  the decayed deconstruction of these outcomes is presented in a reconfigured form.
