Early work, 2003-2005

Anne’s current working practice originates from her biological science background and initial object based practice.  Frustrated by the restraints of objectivity in the science world and feeling the futility of trying to achieve a solid lasting object in a world where neither physical presence or thought, stands still, her work has seen a gradual shift into lens based media.

Studying for an MA in the glass dept at the Royal College of Art, she realised the most exciting and relevant parts of the glass object were in the fluidity of the molten material and the human moments of hesitancy and decision making. Great moments were being ignored in pursuit of the creation of a finished object. ‘I started to make the least object objects I could and it inevitably led me into the photography and film departments.’
