Upon completing ‘Deus Ex Machina’ (God in the Machine) I felt I had created something which equally demanded my attention, but which also left me with a decidedly unsettled response. Through the dark, shadowy gloom I could see strange, misshapen and disturbing faces, perhaps a grotesque and mocking reflection of our darker selves. Locked in a bizarre, comfortless existence, I imagine the inhabitants of this dimension stare longingly out into a world they will never experience or inhabit. I’m drawn to the image – it’s as if I want to know more, to communicate in some way, yet I’m fearful of what I might discover.
