Known for precarious, playful and sometimes dangerous sculptures, British artist Ben Woodeson experiments, developing artworks that tease and challenge. He investigates the physical and psychological qualities of materials through a process of trial and frequent error. How can basic rules of physics be exploited to assemble simple sculptures that straddle a line between stability and instability, action and inaction? Woodeson works by testing, using himself as human litmus paper; seeking a balance point between trepidation and attraction.
