Artist Michael Shaw’s sculpture is original, dynamic and fun. He has created a massive, inflatable sculpture to inhabit RAMM’s gallery. Shaped by the gallery walls, high ceiling and annexe, and animated by cyclical inflation and deflation, it becomes a living, breathing object. Michael Shaw’s responses to artefacts from the museum collections are made in metals, plastics and natural materials, using laser cutting and rapid prototyping. They sit alongside the originals which are displayed as a 21st-century Cabinet of Curiosities.
