These sculptures capture the chaos of hanging washing in the wind, there is no order or certainty when it comes down to the natural elements. The soft material takes random shapes darting into entirely new positions for only a second, and then changing again. To mimic and capture the movement of material I made solid versions of something that is actually fluid. This juxtaposes the reality of soft clothing by freezing the forms of these everyday items.
