The artist’s design Precarious Protrusion sees a layered infrastructure emerging from a bedrock, which appears to reside at ‘tipping point’. With references to a recognisable, well-loved family game, the sculpture is as playful and familiar as it is beautiful. The design relates to Bracknell primarily through regeneration – the idea of progress (the continuous building of the structure) and a tipping point, leading to a new process of building. The layers represent a visual history as it starts with archaic materials representing Bracknell’s prehistoric human occupation (e.g granite and other stones) and develops systematically through the layers to newer materials higher in the structure such copper, steel, aluminium and hardened glass.
