 The intellectual implications of material processes are central to Vanessa Billy's work. Not only is she concerned with the factual: the extraction of raw materials, the production and use of energy and its resultant immutable waste products, but in addition; how these chain reactions shape human thought and activity. Her work, uses a wide variety of forms and materials, from mass-produced industrial goods at the end of their production cycle to the hand-modelled and cast in bronze. Batteries and vitamin pills are suspended in poured resin, slices of processed meat are, scanned and printed as stickers, and oil drums made from blown glass contain their precious cargo. All form a network of mental and physical associations that ­articulate something of the indeterminate condition of the term "natural”.
