Previous works include Glossary, a collaborative show in which she has made artist’s book with adults with visual impairment and disability, Procession, a large-scale intervention at Kirkstall Abbey in 2012, and Sticks and Stones for York Minster in 2010.
Tears of the Angels
An immersive installation about the invisibility of climate change that creates a meditative feast of sound and sight. Seventy-seven hand-crafted bowls are imprinted with the chemical equations for rain and acid rain and filled with water. From a distance all the bowls look the same, its only on close examination the viewer can see the difference. The bowls are displayed under a shower of crystal raindrops and with a thunderstorm soundtrack and a trance-like video piece.
