|Abstract: ||Heeney collaborated with a Korean brick factory to develop a site-specific permanent artwork: a large figural form based upon a historical artefact in the Museum Collection.
Adopting low-tech processes and firing techniques of the indigenous Brick industry, Heeney clarified and extended these ideas through her work and brought them back into use in contemporary art practice. In the process of firing/glazing Heeney discovered that the developing surface resulted in a finish that could be used to focus light within the landscape, in relation to the work. This led to further research into reflective surfaces through glazing with soda-fired brick.|
