The Research Project  examines the writing of the Spanish mystic, Teresa of Avila (1515-1582), in particular her last work Interior Castle (1577), which contains a series of detailed and poetic accounts of imagined architectural spaces.  This research will be conducted through my sculpture and installation practice.
