A piece that I made in response to a call by TBC collective for new work responding to the theme "Hybrid", and which was published in the fourth issue of the online Journal 12Pages (edited by Beverley Bennett). It is a heavily made-up self-portrait vignette that is at the same time an architectural capriccio and a rather histrionic still-life tableau. The scene is made out of paper models, whose textures were drawn on computer.
The scene was then photographed, which in turn was then reworked in photoshop, and drawn on to create an altar-like appearance, fitting the composition of the objects in the scene.

I've included the paper cut-out templates, above of the Horrified Peacock Spoon (the standard ikea tea-spoon slotting in at the base), below of the Facebox and below that of the SharpRoom.

And an image of the set below, which is around 400 by 400mm
