"Hiving Mesh" by Philip Beesley

"An array of fired porcelain clay forms and glass paste plaques hangs vertically, its aligned surfaces forming an outer face. Behind this crust is an interlinked matrix of hundreds of small ceramic objects, densely compressed fragments resembling plant bulbs and body organs. A delicate meshwork of stainless steel wire struts connects each fragmented element to its neighbour, making a cloud of forms like an enormous mass of molecules hovering in open space. Immersing us."
