“Restless” presents an exploration of the tension between safety and chaos. Through the use of found objects, digital media, and ancient symbols, the piece examines angst and the unpredictable nature of fate. A wall-mounted sculpture, two grey leather headrests, laser etched with drawn interpretations of Stratigraphy diagrams and Icelandic sigils for protection. Embedded within each headrest is a colour e-ink display, slowly transitioning through dash-cam footage of car crashes in a passive strobe. Suspended from the headrest pillars are a pair of iridescent green metal dice, a D20 and a D4. An exploration of the interplay between the security of the familiar and the sudden disruption of calamity.
