'A shimmering mixture of alchemy, performance and installation with artists Keith Harrison, Roger Hiorns and Karen Russo. Glittering Ground is a programme of events to accompany the Victor Grippo exhibition which mixes elemental transformations and the science of the impossible.' Camden Arts Centre, January 2007
The work consisted of a full scale reconstruction of a living room carpet taken from a house in Plymouth . The piece was made up of four layers of materials; unfired brick as the base with 22 heating elements sandwiched between a layer of sheet steel onto which was laid a carpet of chapatti bread dough with the original carpet design stencilled in spices on top. The production of the work involved working with Ibstock a national brick manufacturer and incorporated the use of laser cutting technology as part of the Fashion and Textiles CETL department at Bath Spa University .
The cooking of the bread over four hours was recorded on DV film as part of the AHRC grant and subsequently shown at Camden Arts Centre in February as a short film loop.
'20 Whittington Street' is to be featured in the book 'Ceramic Design Course' by Anthony Quinn in November 2007, published by Thames and Hudson.
