My inspiration for Craftspace INSITE 2015 developed from research into William Withering 1741-1799 and his connections to Birmingham and the Lunar society. An English botanist,geologist,chemist and physician,
William discovered digitalis during his botanical study of the foxglove.
His use of the microscope and inventions of field microscopes has inspired this work. The slides used during the nineteenth century are represented in my art installation in Birmingham Cathedral Square. 
The above shows development work created for the commission.
