Shimmer showcases the inventive ways of my artistic thinking in creating sculptures from recycled materials. A bed mattress is an interesting object found discarded on many property verges. Its winding springs have been a curiosity that has initiated some innovative ideas on how to reuse this redundant consumable. The fish inserted into the mattress springs are designed to wiggle even in the slightest of breezes. This constant movement means the piece consistently changes in the light. Every aspect is unique as the fish independently ‘flash’, much like the fish in a bait ball you see in the ocean.
