Concrete Dominates Our Vision Across The World
Leigh’s work explores concrete and the possibility of radically changing our perception of this maligned material. Working with this age-old substance in an innovatory manner to develop and explore the proletariat tacit information hidden in a 2000 year history. Developing a new context and aesthetic dialogue, considering concrete as a material; investigating its diversity, structural strengths and limitations; its weight, adaptability and content. Exploring texture, colour, shape and ultimately the relationship to other materials.
How do the strengths of one material facilitate another?
This ontology and innovative approach to push the boundaries of concrete as a material, delivers a tactile concrete on a more intimate scale, allowing the design of forms that contain architectural references, functional volumes and shapes whilst offering a more fluid language for objects & surfaces.
Leigh Cameron has opened up a whole new dialogue around concrete. This holistic approach has made us reconsider our perceptions. Now, an emotive material has been repositioned as a contender for the modern world and as a lifestyle choice. Making concrete more accessible and acceptable. He has developed and refined skills around concrete and delivers honesty and simplicity to concrete when using it in a contemporary context.
