Languoreth is a sculptural installation that engages with the architectural fabric of Partick Interchange in Glasgow, Scotland. The piece is clad in transport tickets harvested from the very space that the piece inhabited.
Despite the large physical volume of both sculptures the piece seeks to subtly integrate with the existing structure, revealing its presence to those who are outwardly focused.

The forms were sculpted from wire netting and welding rod. It was to this structure that the tickets were adhered. Given the highly public nature of the Partick Interchange, great consideration was given to the issue of how best to safely rig the installation without the use of ladders or scafolding. Thus creating a piece that would adhere to the stringent method and material requirements without undermining the conceptual and aesthetic intention of the piece.
