Ripple, 2019. Copper, silk, cotton, laminated feathers and cloth, recycles plastics

Davina Homer

I have tried to capture the moment after Eliza hits the water. I wanted to create a piece that acts as an opposite to Eliza’s permanently frozen stance. Fluid and reflective, something that gave a sense of the river as a dynamic and changing place. I have used a copper base (bronzes poor cousin) and wires, the threads are hand dyed and the plastic sequins are made from laminated feathers and debris. The clear plastic ropes marking the waves are made from plastic drink bottles, all of which have been found near the Swan River.
