"The Secret Lake"

3D box-construction, made in response to a short story, "Memorial", by Kirsty Gunn, in "For A' That: A Celebration of Burns" (2009, The University of Dundee Press). Her story, "Memorial", which marks a rite of passage, has a mood rich and dark, but one that I also find comforting. This piece, made using an assemblage of found imagery and objects, explores the contradiction inherent in this and plays with its scope. That its illumination comes through only in places, whilst the small gateway to "The Secret Lake" described in the story gives out a light that is warm and hearth-like, are sensual explorations of this idea.
