The invitation to create a new work for the Tatton Park Biennial has enabled Brass Art to bring together this interest in flight and their research into digital self-replication. Their ‘flight of fancy’, or object of reverie, draws inspiration from the classical images of Hypnos and the work of the Surrealists, conjouring journeys of the imagination in conjunction with real spaces.

The Trine Messenger sculpture was created by the data capture of 3D and 4D biomedical facial scans of each of the artists, producing a mean average of their faces. The material transformation Brass Art undertook in the making of this new work was a conversion from living subjects to 4D cloud point data, through to 2D pattern and a single, gigantic, inflatable sculpture. Brass Art extend their interest in The Uncanny in this project, and allow for the inversion of normal laws and behaviours, befitting a ‘flight of fancy’. The arrival of the Trine Messenger on the edge of the Golden Brook recasts the observer in miniature, inverting boundary and rule whilst confronting this interface between the natural, the human and the imagination.
