Zoe's work is an exploration of symmetry harmonious proportion and balance, and its relationship to human behaviour and the natural world if the balance is tipped. Zoe's fascination lies with small changes creating larger differences to a later state. Often unnoticed and unseen, interaction that then creates a different view of perception.
Using Glass as a predominant medium Zoe is interested in symmetrical form, reflection, magnification and the use Scientific theory to create illusion, exploring visual language questioning what is really real. Transparency of the glass posing the question, what are we able to reveal and what should remain unknown.
