Over the past few weeks I have been designing and working on the armature and base layer of clay for a series of sculptures I aim to produce. These sculptures are based on the shape and structure of concrete indicator posts used to signify gas pipes of water hydrants deep underground. Using this recognisable imagery alongside additions of text and symbols I aim to produce a series of sculptures that investigate the concepts of hidden languages in relation to the idea of an underneath. Using sourced image and text from various sources that communicate something lying beneath a surface and impose these languages onto the markers. Utilising the relationship these markers have to specific language which is hidden an unknown by the general public and how overlooked their physicality is, and how we live amongst unusual examples of language without noticing within our day to day lives.
