The concept of my body of work was difficult to physically create. I had to experiment with the different ideas to find the right balance of emotional depth and familiarise the audience with the reality that a lot of people face due to leaving their home country and living in a culture completely foreign to them. There were a range of difficulties that I experienced while creating my body of work which include; bubbles in the epoxy resin, creating a mould for the concrete which was made out of clay, the bronzing of the tiny woman as it was such a small object to bronze and using the laser cutter to print the maps. The sculpture includes various materials such as; rusted wood, concrete, epoxy resin and bronze.
