What was the inspiration behind your work?

This work is created from an artwork swopped by an individual.

Eliza Turner took me on a journey through her weekend and I chose to respond to three subheadings that I believed made up her characteristics which were: chance, love and relationships. 

What was it about the SWOP SHOP that interested you and enticed you to take part?

Ironically it was the idea of the unknown (whether my object will be of demand or not), pride of possession (the relationship between audience and artist and conversations around it) and value (the sentimental worth and attachment one has with the object). The thought of continuing a stranger’s story as possessions and authority are swapped along with the objects.
