By experimenting, dissecting and reinventing the real world Sam Baker creates forms that push, question and play with the potential of a material. By reinvigorating objects with a new status, it is possible to test what a materials function is and transform the way in which it exists.
Sam is creating a new, site-specific sculptural work, inspired by the festival's ethos of uniting artists from different disciplines and developing international alliances through a research trip to Derby's twinned city: Osnabrück. Here, Sam will research common materials, structures and the city's architecture whilst trying to build a relationship through sculpture that can be reconstructed in Derby; fusing a new material link between the two cities.
