In this work made for the White Chapel library viewers where invited to immerse themselves in his installationinspired by Roald Dahl’s story The BFG. In their initial arrangement, free-standing letters form ten words derived from the acclaimed children’s book; as the exhibition progressed, the letters were re-arranged by visitors, allowing the opportunity to play with meanings suggested by the work.
The letters stand on a mirrored surface that created multiple reflections below the viewers’ feet, implying the existence of another place – an upside down, unstable world, alluding to the triumph of the imagination in Dahl’s story.
