The Weathermachines was first conceived while watching an episode of Planet Earth, a brilliant BBC documentary on our lovely planet, more specifically a scene where a Superb Bird of Paradise was bobbing around flaunting his feathers and bluish colouring; this bird, combined with a deep sea squid ignited a vision of a small glass character that would find home on the wall.
As the project evolved more characters were created and a story began to emerge based on my idea of what the apocalypse might bring, basically, robots taking over the world, but in a much friendlier manner.
Many, if not all, of my interests, inspire the storyline and characters. My ideas are inspired by east versus west robots (in their appearances and personalities\intentions), Hindu mythology, yogic philosophy, cute culture, my love of colour, 80s video games, contemporary science, and the common parallels between the mechanical and natural world and its systems.
The story is an ever-expanding universe, continually growing so check back for updates on characters and upcoming exhibitions.
