The series of CNC-fabircated and hand-finished objects, named Timber Bells, were conceived of as a line of ineffectual harbingers that sound unheeded warnings for ocean ecologies in jeopardy.
A variable edition of five, the series drew on practices of fine art print making. This variation occurred through the use of different timber species for each bell. Further variation occurred in the naming of each bell after a different shipwreck found in the geographical area which, in turn, informed the body of work Seachange (2014).
The bells - made of timber as the title would suggest - are presented for the viewer to ring and, paradoxically, take delight in the resultant hollow thunk of various intonations across the different bells.
The series was displayed alongside two lithographic prints which keyed the viewer in to the thought and fabrication processes behind the bells.
