“Sprung”, was made at the old Kangol factory in Cleator in West Cumbria on Xmas Eve, 2014.
I found discarded foam strips lying on the factory floor and tightly coiled them and attached them with drawing pins onto a wooden board.I wanted to evoke connotations with old watch spring  mechanisms, tightly wound up and storing vast amounts of unreleased energy.
The site has recieved planning permission to build new homes and so it feels like a race against time to maximise my creative efforts at this location before the premises are levelled flat.
