Here is an older piece which I haven't previously been able to upload because the scale and of the work.

There phallic Pillars stand in the shape of an equilateral triangle. The three phallic spears have various different found objects wrapped and bound into their surface. The audience are encourage to walk around the three totems to explore the work and discover the collection of objects which have been found and taken from Canal Street in Manchester UK.
The piece aims to highlight some of the abandoned remains of the street as a historic shrine. I hope to encourage a dialogue, looking at the community Canal Street serves and the interaction of those who walk through the streets themselves. There is a tension in the values and pride people have for this microcosm and interested in how others perceive the lifestyle.
