‘Simulacrum’ comes from an investigation into the materiality and potential of tumble drier fluff.  Through an attempt to recycle the remnants of a washing process, the piliferous substance has been reworked into images, in Simulacrum 2, a photograph of myself as a baby and in Simulacrum 2 a collection of Barbie dolls, cherished as a child.  The ‘souvenir’ of laundry and its association with personal shedding is not instantly recognisable, and provides a vehicle for a clean: dirty tension.
