Series of commissions for the 240 million GBP town centre redevelopment 'The Lexicon' across 580,000 sq ft. Including; vitreous enamel cladding of substation, 36 x granite and brass paving stones, 15 x gobo lights, 5 jesmonite benches, 3m cast plant light beacon, wind mitigation screen, 5 x brass lanterns and window vinyls.
I wanted to celebrate the diverse habitats for flora and fauna found across the borough and so looked to integrate nature across the space. My work for this development functions as a treasure trail, with residents and visitors exploring the space to discover and 'collect' all the plants and animals.
This redevelopment required a very large team including; architects, developers, local authorities, landscape architects, multiple clients, urban designers, planners, contractors, fabricators, community representative, engineers and a wide range of specialists. I work with international fabricators to realise my designs but I am the sole artist on all of my projects.

[ manifesto ]
Art matters. Attention to the details of our environment leads to love of place, which brings us to take responsibility for the spaces where we live and work. And by extension, the people with whom we live and work. And by extension, to our local communities, our cities, our nations, and our world.
We champion the role of artists in our society. We need artists to provide us with inspiration, creativity, and imagination, and to help us envision a better world.
Architects and designers know that remarkable design can change everything. They connect the dots across disciplines, collaborating with artists to make the world a more beautiful place. They are the ultimate patrons of the arts.
In the process, design professionals promote imagination and creativity, and through their commissions, make original art integral to and accessible in people's lives.
Art in our public and private spaces helps us fight ordinary buildings, ordinary streets, ordinary cities. We celebrate the extraordinary.
The architecture of our buildings and the design of our interiors affect our happiness and well-being. Each of us deserves a daily dose of inspiration.
