“Catching my Breath”
Hancock’s work focuses the idea of preciousness and the connection between the work and audience. Hancock’s interactive piece, “Catching my Breath” presents an invitation to the audience to participate in an exercise surrounding trust. Presenting two blown glass mouth pieces, the work encourages the audience to interact with one another within the installation. By promoting this relationship between two people it explores the fragile nature of the human condition. It expresses certain aspects of life in general. It should be noted the way in which an exterior of little material value envelops a greater interior significance. This is realized by the way both glass and metal transcend their particular contexts.
