About the Works
Peridiole is an installation piece that is part of a larger body of work, Multiple Expanse, that explores the idea of expansion at different levels. Peridioles are capsules that are filled with spores and are often released from their base fungi by raindrops. I created an abstract, blob-like base sculpture that appears to be dispersing many little bowls. It emphasizes movement away from the centre towards the periphery. In A Thousand Plateaus, Deleuze and Guattari consider that “the rhizome is reducible neither to the One nor the Multiple.” Periodioles have a similar relationship to their base. In Peridiole, the focus is on dispersion, growth and decentralization.
