'Creation Collection' was the product of a residency in a redundant church that was in very poor repair. Each day I walked round the site, collecting objects I found on the ground. The collection eventually contained plant material, broken eggshell, feathers and pieces of masonry.
The connection between the objects and the environment they were collected in suggested the sealed nature of the book. These are allusions to the Gospel truths that once would have been taught here as well as to the architecture of the Medieval church that had seen both Roman and Anglican worship and was now essentially derelict.
