Within this framework I aimed to produce work that relates to my ongoing PhD research into the use of lighted artworks intended for the public realm. In particular, by creating sculptures that utilise familiar forms and combine them with a variety of different technologies in the hopes of producing artworks that can provide a sense of whimsy within everyday settings whilst also seamlessly blending into the urban environment.

By combining a number of technologies and processes, I aimed to create something that is equal parts campy and fun, but that would also not look out of place in a sci-fi dystopian future.
