“Astropod” is the second of three works I created to express my feelings about the geo-political state we are in. In a time of great uncertainty these sculptures explore the power dynamics between citizen and state. "Astropod" is a seed pod form created by extruding a geodesic sphere to create points. as a large metal form it appears as a cartoon explosion or a meteor- like object that could have landed from space. A secret hatch opens at one end to reveal a giant “eye”. You are invited to peer inside and if you shout you will hear your echo. Is the sculpture watching you or are you watching it?
