Requiem

Requiem is a 1:1 scale Installation I designed and created to commemorate lives lost as a result of War.

What I find most interesting about the piece is its indiscriminate expectations; it does not demand anything from the viewer, but appears almost as a frozen scene of silent memory. Yet, watching how viewers react to the piece, it is clear that it is indeed the silence of the piece allows for deep and undisturbed contemplation.

I was commissioned to create the piece for The Shrewsbury Flower Show 2014, and since then it has been displayed at The Theatre Severn, Staffordshire Regiment Museum and Honourable Artillery Company, London.
