Wire Workers

This installation for my Final Major Project (BTEC) resulted from experiments with wire and exploration of the components of everyday electrical objects. The ‘Wire Workers’ are inspired by my, then new, research into natural history and Leafcutter ants. It was interesting to consider what humans could learn from the natural world and the levels of organization in nature. I wanted to represent the idea of individuals acting as one to construct, store and survive.
