Spaghetti Weave (February 2014) | Adam Wells
Performance (3:04:15) & Sculpture

I weaved spaghetti to experiment with the combination of comfort found in food, materials and repetitive actions. Eating the piece gave me comfort in consuming my personal comfort food and the satisfaction of both creating and destroying my work. (Clips from Performance)

Finger Knitting (February 2014) | Adam WellsPerformance (01:43:23)
A performance exploring the comforting and meditative process of knitting. After an hour I decided to unravel the knit and return the yarn back to the ball of wool due to the anxiety of creating a piece which had no defined purpose. The cyclical process and the comfort intertwined in the creation is what interested me. (Clips from Performance)

Roadside Litter (January 2014) | Adam Wells

5.5kg of compressed litter collected from 1 mile of countryside road
2 hours worth of collecting and documenting the litter

The motive behind this piece was to make people aware of the accumulation of litter. It also raises the question of whether it is littering to collect litter, alter it and place it back where it was originally left.
Covering the waste in soil imitates the process at landfill sites where soil is spread over waste to prevent odours and improve appearance. It also serves as a metaphor for how waste is often hidden and not dealt with.

The second photo of your most recent upload brings down the quality. The light painting of the face by itself would be a lot more effective in putting across your message in my opinion. Love your creativity. Your blog is excellent.

Yeah I totally agree, I was thinking of taking it down altogether. Thanks for your feedback, really appreciated!

Mouth Landscapes | Adam Wells
I asked participants to eat an apple for 1 minute. Everyone had different shaped mouths and eating styles so everyones apple ‘landscape’ was different. The internal mouth ‘landscapes’ were transferred to the ‘landscapes’ of the apples.
