The sculptural works, the torrent of things grown so familiar, brings together Brass Art’s fascination with geology and deep time, with their interest in the transformation of readily available, low-cost materials such as foil blanket. In the sculptural forms, focus shifts between the exterior silver surface of the foil blanket and an illuminated interior world of 3D digitally scanned and printed hand gestures and 19th and 20th Century botanical teaching models, originally made by Robert and Reinhold Brendel and held in the Manchester Museum collection. The sculptures are grounded by cast bronze skeletal hooves, referencing metamorphic furniture feet from the 18th and 19th Centuries.

The title references Woolf’s last and most experimental novel, The Waves, 1931. It traces the lives of six characters from childhood to middle age, describing events throughout their lives, personal triumphs and disappointments, told through their internal monologue.
