This 3D series has been created in response to the fear and chaos we experience in the world. I wanted the pins to emulate the restricted tension and pain that is experienced throughout life. Taking something that was once comforting and overemphasising these elements to create a sense of discomfort is quite powerful. At the same time, the face emulates a certain fragility and vulnerability that the lack of eyes or over exaggerated teeth portray. The human like qualities also represent a degree of disconnection and a disintegration of emotions.
