Overview

Inflatable islands; a cast metal thylacine with a stuffed toy sensibility; an animal trap and trees made up Caroline Rothwell‘s installation, Blowback.

 

The works in Blowback suggested undiscovered territories somewhere between Dr no's technosonic islands, enlarged mass-produced toys and strange drawings by eighteenth-century voyagers.

 

Industrial urban materials were processed by hand into large-scale distortions of nature to create an other-worldly yet strangely familiar environment.
