Skye Williams Lancashire, United Kingdom
  Back to profiles

Skye Williams is currently based in Wickford, UK. Her work explores community, collaboration and conversation via sculptures and installation.

Skye Williams is interested in community, collaboration and conversation, bringing the public into important aesthetic decisions in her work to bring this about. Most recently, Williams' has used everyday, household objects in encouraging members of the public to participate in her installations through drawing and writing directly on them. By displaying her installations in public spaces, she can access a plethora of individuals to partake, which often results in interesting written conversations that are read in part and remain unfinished by the participants. Previously, Williams' has seen a huge amount of political debate appear on her work, a discussion forming between many people who are unlikely to return to re-access the unfolding arguments. These works explore unscripted communication, allowing the participants to discuss whatever they feel fit, often without meeting one another.
