The Puppeteer

Mild Steel

The main artwork of Maddock's 'Missing Pieces' project. Situated in the heart of Chatham's Historic Dockyard hung from the central crane was 'The Puppeteer' a over 2 meters tall steel hand. Maddock shaped and welded this monumental artwork for her final degree show in 2019. This artwork plays upon the monumental and encourages the visitors to interact with art. Through Maddock's own design she made the hand articulate. Seen in the images below Maddock designed a pull system that allowed guests to flex the fingers of the hand from a platform which she herself made.
