In line with Callaghan’s practice, the microstructures, while appearing to be constructed according to an analogous geometrical ratio, are in fact unique. Each piece was created through practice-led research and possess sui generis qualities. This tension between likeness and diversity challenges the viewer’s ability to categorise the forms. This cognitive procedure intertwines with the sensorial answer prompted by the warm materiality of the clay as well as the chromatic intensity of the wall pieces. The artist’s hope for these processes of subjective engagement is to push our current experience towards new possibilities – towards as-yet unappreciated realities. The wall pieces provide a structural fabric for an urban model that can expand into an infinite space.
