Volume 2: A history of wind





A History of Wind is the second volume in my imaginary Museum of Fathers, which 
houses approximately 80 objects and drawings. A History of Wind has three planned chapters. 

The first chapter, The tree would only be found at higher altitudes, are experimental works fuelled by my automatic drawing and sculpture. This suite autobiographical drawings allegorises slow building, wild weather events. It is an exploration of agency. By this I mean the incremental shifts of knowledge that enable effective action for the migrant, refugee or sailor, who passes into uncharted and unfamiliar waters. This precariousness is heightened when the ship’s compass stops working. To steer us through unknowable waters, these allegorical works imagine an encyclopedic study of cloud patterns.
Measurements: All works measure 150x 100- 105cm (approx)
Materials: Archival watercolour pencils on archival Fabriano watercolour paper 200 gsm
Dates: The tree would only be found at higher altitudes (I), 2015-6; The tree would only be found at higher altitudes (II-VII), 2016.
