Concept / Design / Construction
Seven Seals was a sculpture I worked on with Patrick Collier and TRANSITION COLLECTIVE as part of an installation called "The Monomyth" which took place @SEVEN at Brixton.
Patrick and I shared a fascination with modern and classical mythologies. Working together we explored the hero myth and the use of icons as a shorthand in story telling. We looked at universal motifs of adventure and transformation and an homage to Joseph Campbell's concept of the 'monomyth', which has served as a cultural framework for countless contemporary stories.
The intricately laser cut imagery of the sculptural rings were inspired by the Book of Revelations and the opening of the Seven Seals, bringing forth the Horsemen of Conquest, War, Famine, Death before the final end of the world.
