Degree Show Collection

Together living: degree show collection selected works.

The pieces in this collection seek to celebrate some of the intricate symbiotic relationships at work in the natural world, many of them unobserved or misunderstood. In Eleanor’s work,  diverse materials have been applied to mimic these instances of symbiosis. The consideration of tactility and light in each piece is intended to invoke a cuirosity that reveals more than initially meets the eye.
