Shaping Neurodivergence: 

Celebrating different thinkers

sculpture - Rendered video
on Raine 2023

Concepts in sculpture which are 3D printed are placed in unexpected locations, to raise awareness of neurodivergence. Currently my work centres on celebrating neurodivergence - more specifically, literacy, dyslexia and language; my sculptures start conversations about neurodivergence, and seek to change perceptions and empower the next generation of different thinkers. The sculpture ‘Gobbledygook’ will also be a solid form, 2.5 metres high, of mixed-up words and jumbled letters which are fused together; its content is hard to decipher, inviting the viewer to engage in a process of unpuzzling its meaning. The sculpture will have a virtual - XR (extended reality) alternative; video projection, or the sculpture could be viewed on a screen.

As a neurodivergent individual/ ‘different thinker’ I would like to change how we see neurodivergence and improve how we (as we are all on the spectrum) are valued in society. My work would be funded by me and the Arts Council England, and I am looking for engaging physical or virtual places to locate the sculptures.
