Decadence

'Decadence' examines and celebrates corroded patterned surfaces. Fundamental to this project is the appropriated wallpaper pattern. Through a process of digital reconstruction, I recreated the repetitive pattern which decorated my childhood living room for almost twenty-five years. I then replicated the pattern onto carefully selected surfaces through controlled experiments. These were carried out over unregulated durations of time, using a variety of materials, methods, catalysts and utensils. I describe the practice as 'artificial decay', as repeating factors affect the work, much like seasonal elements would affect a surface naturally.
