Materials used in the work The central tower (4.5m x 5m x 5m) is a timber frame covered with leather fibre fabric shingle. This material is usually used for book binding and is made in a similar way to paper as leather scraps are shredded, compressed and then bonded together with a silicon glue. The igloo (2.5m x 4m x 4m if closed) is a timber-framed nine sided dome with insulation and wool laid over the outside. The sphere is highly pigmented ceramic powder (Artestone) on canvas.
IGLOO at Globe Gallery Newcastle
Leading up to the main exhibition at Towner, we were able to create two smaller versions of our concept. The installation at Globe included a single object to support, obscure and shelter the paintings. This was an unfolded nine sided dome, constructed from timber, insulation and wool underfelt.
