Produced for Race For the Prize group show, part of the British Art Show Fringe. Higgs Bridge started life as a sketch of a mysterious looking shed/beach hut I encountered near Camber Sands. I started working along the lines that something fantastical or esoteric could be taking place inside. After some time adding and subtracting elements to the animation I read an article about the search for the Higgs Boson particle at Cern. The original animation then morphed into an imagined machine, used for entering into, or bridging the gap between observed and unobserved space. Entrances, exits, pathways and the mapping of esoteric mechansims there within seem to be themes that reoccur in my work.
