Fragile Infrastructure

Thames water has been replacing the Victorian water pipes, digging up the road. London is a continual building site, this makes the job of a ceramic bricoleur easier, these holes give you access to the earth under the asphalt. I have been able to get London clay from deep under London. This Clay has been discarded during the process of testing for ground water and left at the side of the road. I made tiles and installed them close to the collection sites.

A kaleidoscope is an instrument containing bits and pieces by means of which structural patterns are realised. The fragments are products of a process of breaking up and destroying. Offering a paradoxical conformation of both decline and progress, it is under construction.
