Winner of the inaugural Sculpture Shock prize of the Royal British Society of Sculptors, London-born and raised Amy Sharrocks, talks about her love of her home town, and how much she enjoys sharing discoveries with fellow walkers and swimmers. One could argue, that she is infatuated with water, not just consuming the stuff, but swimming her way across London; but in truth, her interests are in journeying by whatever means as long as the mode provides the traveller with time to contemplate and daydream.
In this interview with Andrew Stuck, recorded on the eve of the selection of the Sculpture Shock winner in November, 2012, Amy talks about the range of her work and how she sees live art as a clear way in which we humans sculpt our everyday urban lives.
