I made a series of sentences and phrases from unfired porcelain which I placed around the city. I wanted to explore making ‘gentle interventions’ into public space, as a way of meeting people going about their days. I made these to reflect a transitory time between our inside and outside lives, something to accompany emerging while acknowledging how fragile that emerging was and continues to be. Because the pieces are unfired, they crumble and wash away with the rain, leaving no trace.
