Twisted Form was developed during an artist residency at the King George V gallery with the Ilkeston Ormiston Academy school.
Inspiration came from the Kepler Conjecture, a mathematical theorem about sphere packing in a three dimensional space, by the 16th century mathematician, astronomer and astrologer Johannes Kepler.
During the residency Rachel experimented with this theory using small polystyrene shapes alongside sketches, which led to the Twisted Form. Made from 50 individually woven units stacked and fixed together to create the two connecting structures.
After the residency the sculpture was exhibited at RHS Chelsea Flower Show and Doddington Hall before being re-assembled at the Melbourne Art Trail that altered as each piece was removed and sold over the course of a single weekend.
