Rudimentary possibilities for stepping lightly

By  Claire Barber 2000
The use of twigs provided the means by which I started to push the idea of lifting my flip-flops above the ground in the landscape of New Zealand to consider the rudimentary possibilities of interacting as respectively and delicately as possible with the landscape I found there. Variations on this theme and a wider approach to the land were pursued during an Artist-in-Residency that followed on the remote Bardsey Island in North Wales in 2001. A second body of work comprises small shoes created from sea kelp and provides the opportunity for me to explore the creative possibilities of the kelp in different stages of dryness, this involvement extending beyond the practical significance of their construction.
